Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Earth Day Craft Shapes
Once you have the earth day craft templates printed out, staple them to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will have so much fun doing this Earth Day activity!
I recommend having an Earth Heart that is already put together so the children can see what the final version will look like.

- Glue on the smaller green land pieces wherever they fit. Make sure to leave some space in the center for the face.
- Glue the eyes into the center of your heart.
