Earth Day Coloring Activities
Coloring Pages and Activity Sheets for Earth Day
Earth Day coloring pages and recycle crafts activities that teach sustainable living help kids learn about and develop good conservation habits. Earth Day arts and crafts make children aware of environmental issues and teach them how they can help protect the Earth beginning in their own homes, neighborhoods and classrooms.
Learning about Earth Day and conservation can be fun, especially when lesson plans include Earth Day activity sheets. Kids who are reading benefit from the posters and slogans and symbols we find in our communities and in the media for Earth Day, but even the youngest child can learn important lessons about recycling from Earth Day coloring pages and crafts.
