1) LORAX INSPIRED TREE FRAME
Take your frame and pop the back out, and take a sheet of paper, and measure it to fit the back of the frame, and once you cut that out with some scissors, all you have to do is glue on some pom poms and on the bottom of each one, put some green string on, gluing all of those on the piece of paper, and write down on the bottom, speak for the trees, and glue that piece of paper to the back of the frame, and pop the back into the frame, and you got yourself a cute Lorax themed inspired Earth day frame.
2) EARTH DAY CRAYONS (GREAT PROJECT IF YOU ARE A MOM)
•Pan (Mini muffin pans is what I am going to use for this DIY)
Unwrap the crayons, and break them into small pieces. Line the muffin pan with the cupcake liners, and add a broken blue and green color to your pan, until it is melted. I recommend putting a small glass bowl of some sort, or a jar in the middle of your pan, and stir that around inside. Preheat your oven to 250 F in the mean time. Take the mixture out of the pan, and pour it into the pan. Leave them in there for about 15-20 minutes, or until melted. Make sure to keep checking them. Take the crayons out and let them cool, around an hour. Remove the paper, and you have the cutest crayons.
3) SODA BOTTLE TERRARIUM
•2 liter soda bottle (washed and dried)
•Activated Carbon (from pet store)
•Pistachio shells (or Spanish moss)
•2 small tropical plants
1) Have an adult with you for this part - Four inches from the bottom of your 2 liter bottle, cut the bottle into two parts with a craft knife or a pair of scissors. The bottom part will be the planter and the top part will be the cover of the terrarium.
2) Add an inch of pebbles to the bottom of the planer. Add a single layer of activated carbon. This will filter the water. Add a barrier layer of Spanish moss or pistachio shells. And finally, add potting soil - enough so that it comes to about a 1/2 inch below the top part of your planter.
3) Plant the tiniest plants you can find. Add fresh moss to the top of the soil.
4) Lightly water your terrarium. Cut a short slit down the back of the planter, about a 1/2 an inch. Push the planter together where you cut the slit and place the cover on top. Put your terrarium in a spot where it'll get plenty of INDIRECT sunlight.
