Newspaper Art: Celebrating Earth Day

Hi there!

This week has been really busy in our classroom. We are celebrating Earth Day, getting ready for the Day of the Child, and also getting ready for our ABC countdown fun!

As part of our Earth Day celebration we did a super cute activity inspired by Proud to be Primary. We recycled old newspapers and did a self portrait.

I loved this activity. It gave my students the opportunity to work on several days on a project while doing their part conserving the environment.

After collecting old newspapers, we used permanent markers to draw the outline 
of the bodies and all the body parts.

The following day we colored all of the inside of their pictures.

These are some of our creations!

This beautiful environmental-friendly bulletin board is proudly display in the classroom!

Happy Earth Day!


  1. Nice art! I think such creative art should be there in schools at an earlier stage so that we can see the creativity that stays hidden inside the kids. The kids have really done well. Along with study there should also be other cultural and social things. The board is the best attraction for Earth day. After School Activities Buford, GA.
