How to make crafts to Earth Day. In spring, according to tradition, various events are held, which unite one goal: to draw as much attention to the numerous problems of our common home as the Earth, and to learn to be as attentive to a fragile and defenseless environment as possible.
For kids, the most understandable and interesting way to express their attitude towards nature and our planet as a whole will be a themed crafts; on Earth Day, it will acquire special significance if it helps to draw the attention of adults to the ecological situation in the world.
Handy to the Day of the Earth
For example, an interesting crafting by the Day of the Earth can be performed in the technique of stained glass window. To make it, you need to cut a circle from a thick, double-sided black paper with a rather wide (about one and a half to two centimeters) outline. Then you need to fix it on the window glass with pieces of transparent self-adhesive stained glass film of blue, green and yellow color - like our planet.Anyone passing by, looking out of the window and seeing such a stained glass window there, will be interested in its value.
