This Earth Day craft pairs well with any of your favorite Earth Day books, Earth Day activities and Earth Day poems!

Marble Painted Earth Day Craft Supplies
- White circle template
- Black construction paper
- Green washable paint
- Blue washable paint
- White washable paint
- Painter’s tape
- Glue stick
- Box lid
Marble Painted Earth Day Craft Directions
First, cut out a large circle from white construction paper. I like to trace around a plate, so the diameter is roughly 8-9 inches.
Using painter’s tape, attach the white circle template inside the box lid. Simply roll the tape and place it on the backside of the circle.
Next, drizzle green, blue and white paint onto the circle. Place the marbles in the paint.
Then, gently tilt the box lid from side to side so that the marbles roll back and forth through the paint.
This will create a unique design of swirled green, blue and white paint… much like a picture of Earth!
After the paint dries, attach the marble painted Earth Day craft to a piece of black construction paper.
The black paper certainly makes the craft pop!
Earth Day Writing Prompt
I like to have my students add a “Promise” to their craft. First, we create an anchor chart and brainstorm ways we can help the Earth.
Then, the students choose one promise to write. We attach these promises under their Earth Day craft.
