Earth Day Crafts for Kids

'Think green' with four Earth Day crafts – including a stained glass planet, recycled bird feeder and more.

In your home, how do you stress the importance of recycling? With Earth Day 2016 just around the corner, April is a great time to set some good examples for your children by recycling a bit more, looking for recycled products at the store, and trying to extend the life of an item by fixing it or passing it on to someone else. This week’s roundup is in celebration of Earth Day; which project will your child like most?
