Are you looking for a fun project for your students to make on Earth Day? This Earth Day Hand Print Craft is a colorful and creative way to celebrate the holiday. Hang these hand print keepsakes in the hallway for a festive decoration that will brighten up your school.
How To Make An Earth Day Hand Print Craft:
- White Card Stock
- Black Paint
- Paint Brush
- Watercolor Paints
- Red Card Stock
- Glue Stick
- Skin Tone Colored Card Stock
This simple Earth Day craft requires very little preparation. To prepare the black glue, open the top of a bottle of glue that is half empty. Next, squirt some black paint into the bottle, put the lid back on, and shake well. Then, download and print the Earth template. (click on the pencil below)
How To Make:
To begin making this Earth Day craft, your students will trace the outline of the Earth with the black glue. After the glue dries completely, they will cut out the Earth.
Next, your students will use watercolors to paint the Earth blue and green. After the paint dries completely, they will cut out a small heart from a piece of red card stock and glue it onto the Earth. You can also use pre-cut, red foam hearts that have an adhesive back.
Finally, your students will trace their hands on skin tone colored card stock and cut them out. They will then glue the Earth onto the hands.
(Hint: To make a simpler version of this craft, your students can just color the Earth instead of using the black glue and watercolor paints.)
