Getting Ready

Prepping the puzzles couldn’t get much simpler. I printed a copy of the puzzles {HERE} on cardstock to give them extra durability and cut along the thin grey lines to separate the strips. Easy peasy.

Earth Day Puzzles

My boys and I have talked about Earth Day before so they knew it was a celebration of all-things environmentally-friendly. We worked together to brainstorm a long list of different ways we can help the planet: picking up litter, watering trees, recycling…

Then I showed the boys the mixed up puzzles and invited them to sort the pieces into the correct order, building a photo of one awesome Earth Day activity we’d work on together. I gave each excited child a scrambled puzzle. Piece by piece, they started building.

And in just a couple minutes, both puzzles were complete.

Fun, free Earth Day puzzles for kids

I slid the pieces into separate snack-sized Ziplocs and placed them in my bag so I could easily entertain the boys when we’re waiting in doctors’ offices, restaurants… you name it! Then we set out to make a positive impact on the planet by taking our plastics to the outdoor recycling bin and hunting down the perfect spot for a new tree. Happy Earth Day!
