Fun Friday: Story Time + Craft: Recycle Every Day! By Nancy Elizabeth Wallace and Earth Day NecklaceSaturday, April 30th, 2011
Here’s what we did for Fun Friday on April 29th.
The book was Recycle Every Day! by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Sing to the tune “Eensy Weensy Spider”
Reduce, reuse, recycle are words that we all know.
We have to save our planet so we can live and grow.
We might be only children but we will try, you’ll see.
And we can save this planet. It starts with you and me.
Sing to the tune “Twinkle Twinkle”
We recycle what we use.
Separate things and you should too!
Glass and paper, plastic, tin,
Go in your recycling bin.
We must start now, we can’t wait.
Quick or it will be too late!
The Craft: Earth Day Necklace
What you’ll need:
- 1 ½ in circles with earth or recycle symbol
- 2 in or larger circles cut from card stock or recycled milk jug lids
- Green and blue pony beads
- String, yarn or shoe strings
How to make it:
Print and cut out earth or recycle symbols. We use ones I found at DLTK’s Crafts for Kids – Earth Circles and Recycle Symbol. You can print them in color or black and white (we’ve linked directly to the color images and used the circles for the Paper Plate Earth Day Wreath).
If using the black and white template have the child color them before cutting them out. Then glue them on the recycled lid. Punch a hole in the top of the lid. String the lid and blue and green beads on the string to make a necklace.
