FREE Earth Day Activities for Little Learners

Hey friends! If you’re anything like me, you’re probably scrambling for Earth Day activities for little learners since it’s just a few days away! While putting together our list of activities, I found several fun FREEBIES from some friends so I thought I’d put them all in one place for you all! I hope you’re able to find some fun ideas for you and your kiddos!


Earth Day Books

Since I forgot about grabbing materials sooner, I dug through our book shelf to see what we already had!

Creation Bible Study

Although we’ve already completed our Creation Bible study once, I thought it would be a good idea to pull out some of the activities again and reread the story. We love to use holidays and celebrations as a chance to tie in Scripture. So discussing how God created our Earth and how we can take care of it as a way to glorify Him is important to us!


Earth Day Math & Literacy

These centers are the perfect addition for your Math and Literacy time! Count and build the correct amount of water bottles in the recycling bin, match upper and lower letters, and practice fine motor skills with recycling-themed PlayDoh cards!


Earth Day Fine Motor Activities

Do you have little ones who are working on their fine motor skills? Look no further than these adorable FREE fine motor activities! Practice matching colors with this flower sensory bin, match and discuss recycling pictures, and practice tracing!
