Try It Tuesday - Recycled Earth Art for Toddlers
In the spirit of Earth Week, why not create your own Earth for display in your home with your toddler using recycled materials.
I simply used a cardboard pizza box that I drew a circle on and cut out. Then I used some blue and green tissue paper than I saved from gifts or packages we had received; tore up pieces of the blue to cover the circle and some green "continent" pieces (or at least my best ripped representation of some of the continents.) And finally, I created a paste out of flour and water which we used to glue the tissue paper to the cardboard circle.
With a small amount of foresight and an even small amount of prep time, I had a simple craft to do with my toddler son as we kicked off our Earth Week.
