Daisy Earth Day Craft with Printable Templates
My daughter and I had so much fun making this Daisy Earth Craft. It’s a perfect Earth Day themed activity, but you can also recreate these anytime you need something fun to entertain the kiddos with! These also make great gifts, so be sure to create extras for teachers, grandparents, or anyone else who would love to hang a beautiful piece of artwork from your kiddo on their fridge.
Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate Earth Day with your little ones? Look no further than daisy flowers!
Daisies are not only beautiful, but they’re also a symbol of purity and innocence, which is something we want to encourage in our children as they learn about the importance of taking care of our planet. Plus, they’re super easy to grow, making them a perfect addition to any Earth Day activity.
But that’s not all! Did you know that daisies attract bees and other pollinators? By planting daisy flowers, we can help support these important creatures and keep our ecosystems healthy and balanced.
Now, you might be thinking, “Okay, daisies are cool, but what can we do with them?” Well, how about recreating a fun paper earth daisy craft with your kids or students?
All you need is some colored paper, scissors, glue, and a bit of creativity. You can even write a message about Earth Day on your art piece to make it extra special. Hang it up in your home or classroom to remind everyone to do their part in taking care of our planet.
And the best part? You can keep the daisy theme going by planting real daisy flowers in a pot or in your garden. This is a great way to get kids excited about gardening and nature.
So, there you have it! Daisies are not only beautiful but they also remind us of the importance of taking care of our planet. So why not celebrate Earth Day by creating a fun paper earth daisy craft with your little ones and planting some daisy flowers? Let’s make the world a more beautiful place, one daisy at a time!
Recreate the Earth Day Craft
To recreate this Daisy Craft you will need:
Using green cardstock, cut out the leaves for your flowers.
Grab the printable template found at the end of this page. After printing out your Earth template, use markers or crayons to color them green and blue. When you are done coloring, cut out your Earth images.
To create the daisy, flatten a cupcake liner and fold it in half. Fold the cupcake liner three more times as shown in the photo.
Cut the top of the folded liners into a round shape to mirror the ones in the photo.
Unfold the cupcake liner to finish the first layer of your flower. You’ll need to do this three times, making three layers for each flower.
After your petals are complete, it’s time to start assembling your flowers! Glue the cupcake liners together and then glue the Earth into the center of each flower. Glue a paper straw onto blue cardstock and the flower onto the paper straw. Finally, glue leaves onto the cardstock, right against the paper straw.
Your Earth Day craft is finished! This is an easy and inexpensive craft that’s perfect for the classroom too.
