Coloring Pages and Activity Sheets for Earth Day

Earth Day coloring pages and recycle crafts activities that teach sustainable living help kids learn about and develop good conservation habits. Earth Day arts and crafts make children aware of environmental issues and teach them how they can help protect the Earth beginning in their own homes, neighborhoods and classrooms.

Learning about Earth Day and conservation can be fun, especially when lesson plans include Earth Day activity sheets. Kids who are reading benefit from the posters and slogans and symbols we find in our communities and in the media for Earth Day, but even the youngest child can learn important lessons about recycling from Earth Day coloring pages and crafts.

Living Green is the Best Example

Learning to live a green lifestyle naturally begins at home. The best way to teach children about responsible environmental living, recycling and the reasons behind Earth Day is to live green. Children who live a green lifestyle understand the basics and embrace the ideals.

Earth Day is Every Day. Burn Calories Not Watts. Think Green. Love Your Mother Earth. Recycling Begins With Me. Live Green. Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle.

These slogans are all around yet we still don't do enough to help protect our planet Earth. Let's get kids involved creatively with Earth Day coloring pages, posters and Earth Day crafts.

@anonymous: The only source I know of for this image is the printable PDF booklet - it's the cover image but there's no black and white image inside. You could copy it or trace it and then reproduce the drawing. is a US agency and so most of the content on site is in the public domain - but check if you plan to use the image.
