As Earth Day approaches, it’s important to teach children about the importance of protecting our planet. One great way to get kids involved is through crafting! Earth Day crafts for kids are a fun and engaging way to educate children about the environment and encourage them to make sustainable choices. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or caregiver, these crafts are sure to spark creativity and inspire eco-consciousness in your little ones.
Crafting on Earth Day
Earth Day crafts can range from simple to complex, depending on the age and skill level of your child. Even toddlers can participate in some of these activities with a little help from an adult. By using recycled materials or natural resources, these crafts can also help teach children about the importance of reusing and reducing waste. From creating a homemade bird feeder to making a nature collage, the possibilities are endless.
Not only are Earth Day crafts fun and educational, but they also provide a great opportunity for family bonding. By working together to create something beautiful and environmentally friendly, you and your child can develop a deeper appreciation for nature and the planet we all call home. So, grab some supplies and get crafting this Earth Day!

TV Show: Curious Crafting
I’m so excited to share my crafting TV show Curious Crafting which launched in July 2022 on TVOkids and TVOkids YouTube! Season 2 airs in the summer of 2023! We were also nominated in 2023 for Best Live Action Preschool Series by the Youth Media Alliance Awards of Excellence.
Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.
In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create.
Curious Crafting shares the adventure and joy of making art with takeaway lessons for creating crafts at home.
This show designed for toddlers and preschoolers 2.5 years old and up.
