Tissue Paper Earth Day Craft Directions
First, you will need to cut out a large, white circle for each student. I usually trace around the outside of a plate, making our circles approximately 8-9 inches in diameter.
Next, cut the green and blue tissue paper into one-inch squares.
Before beginning the tissue paper Earth Day craft, I explain to the students that the blue squares represent the water and the green squares represent the land. At this point, I show them a picture of the Earth so that they can see the distinction between the water and land.
Now, the students will glue the squares onto the white circle. I model how to overlap the tissue paper.
Last, we glue the Earth on top of a piece of black construction paper and add our Earth Day promises.
Each Earth Day craft turns out unique!
Earth Day Writing Prompt
Before writing our “Earth Day Promise,” we create an anchor chart by brainstorming a list of ways we can protect the Earth.
Then, each student writes a promise to the Earth. We attach their promise under their tissue paper Earth craft.

Over the years, we have also made marble painted Earth crafts.
These paintings always turn out so unique, and the kiddos especially enjoy watching the marbles roll through the paint!
