This easy tissue paper Earth craft is a fun activity for preschoolers and older kids. They will be able to celebrate Earth Day using recycled materials. I always recommend saving tissue paper from gifts as well as cardboard from online purchases or snack boxes. It’s a great way to teach young kids about reusing items to help our planet. Yes, this art project is time consuming but kids will get a chance to work on their scissor skills and appropriate use of glue. You can also have a discussion about Earth and recycling.

Supplies for Tissue Paper Earth
- First, cut a small or medium circle from recycled cardboard.
- Next, use a pencil to draw the outline of the continents. An adult or older child will have to assist small children with this step.
- Have your child use safety scissors to cut the green and blue tissue paper into small pieces. If they are not ready for scissors, let them tear pieces of tissue paper for this craft.
- Finally, crumple the tissue paper into small balls then glue onto the cardboard Earth until it’s completely covered. My tip is to start with the continents then water.
