Earth Day Craft for All Ages: Salvage and Recycle

For this Earth Day craft, you’ll get to clean up your supply closet and recycle leftovers while kids learn about having a new life with Jesus.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17

You’ll need:

  • Bible
  • green paper plates
  • blue play dough
  • various recyclables and extra craft supplies, such as toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, egg cartons, old bolts and screws, colored craft sticks, pompom balls, chenille wires, and so on
  • permanent markers

Earth Day Craft: Salvage and Recycle

Say: This week we’re celebrating Earth Day, a day set aside for appreciating and caring for God’s creation. One thing we can do to care for the earth is recycle. That helps make the earth’s resources last longer. Recycling goes back pretty far in history; in fact, the Bible says Jesus recycled us! Read 2 Corinthians 5:17.


Ask:

  • What do you think are some old things Jesus gets rid of in us?
  • How has Jesus transformed you into something amazing?

Say: Today we’re going to recycle and repurpose old things to make a new creation. 

To begin this Earth Day craft, have kids roll the play dough into a ball and press it flat onto the center of the plate. Then kids can create their salvage sculptures by arranging supplies into the play dough base. Have kids write, “The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” on their plates.

Say: This Earth Day, remember to care for the earth the way Jesus cares for each of us—by recycling the old into something creative and new!
