Earth Day is on April 22nd, and there are many, many activities you can do to celebrate with your preschoolers!
Even more importantly, you can help them develop an Earth Day attitude every day by recycling and re-using materials.
Building a pinata from scratch gives your children a fabulous sensory experience, a
building/construction experience, and practice re-using materials! Like my daughter said, "I bet those newspaper people never knew that their newspaper would become a ladybug pinata!"
Click here for step-by-step directions on how to make a pinata. Use newspapers and leftover scraps as you mache each layer on the pinata!
Then, paint it like a ladybug, add silly eyes, hide some goodies inside, and use it to celebrate Earth Day...or a birthday, or anything else!
I may share at any of these parties!
