Earth Day Crafting

I just love Earth Day.  It's a day of so much promise and appreciation.  We've been celebrating the Earth all week long.
And remember our nature walk?
We found this beautiful Dogwood tree, in full bloom.  It's our state tree.

So it inspired a craft.

Well, a little bit of craft, and a little bit of snack ;-)
Check out this very cute idea I found to make an Earth Day snack of edible dirt.

Speaking of snacking, we also read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and were inspired to create our own caterpillar.
I think this is one of those crafts that every kid makes at least once in childhood.

But it never seems to lose its charm, you know?

Happy Earth Day!

That looks like so much fun! The caterpillar is adorable. The Hungry Caterpillar is one of Hailey's favorite books. :)

Happy Earth Day!

edible crafts are the absolute best! I think that's why I like making homemade glue so much!
