Earth Day Art

We are doing some work with earth day in school today and tomorrow we are taking in some local festivities - an earth day event at the Tacoma Nature Center and the Parade of the Species in Olympia. Should be a great time!

With school we have read a few books on earth day from the library, worked in our garden, created an earth day booklet and did an earth art project. The earth art project is very cool - you take a photo copy of an earth coloring sheet and tape down. Then lay a piece of clear contact paper sticky side up over the earth color sheet, tape down. Using blue and green tissue paper fill in the earth, as if coloring with tissue paper. When completed cover the earth shape with another piece of contact paper sticky side down and seal up well. Then trim out your earth and you have a fantastic window art piece!
