5 Crafts for Earth Day with Recycled Material

Each year on April 22, we celebrate Earth Day! Earth Day is a global celebration of the environment that aims to raise awareness about our habitat and climate. It’s important to respect Earth always – but on Earth Day especially. Take the time today to teach your child the importance of maintaining our home.

One way to keep the Earth clean is by recycling. When you recycle, you help save energy and resources, and therefore reduce pollution. To inspire your kids to start recycling, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite crafts made with cardboard! Even better, you can use the cardboard from your KIDPIK box to complete these crafts.
