Green, Spring Earth Day Craft

TITLE

 

“Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?” At least that’s how the nursery rhyme goes. With the pollen finally fallen and the birds nesting in the bough. There’s no time for resting, as far as the clear skies allow. It’s spring. And, there’s new life in everything. A time to sow, so fall, we’ll reap. To garden, to sweep, to plant, to prune. Enjoying the cooler air ‘til June.

Here’s a “green” Earth Day craft for little ones to try. It repurposes household items and is biodegradable, that’s why!
