Patrons make a "stained glass" window-style Earth with simple craft materials. Turn this into a "Take & Make" activity by providing each patron with the materials ( two 9'' unwaxed paper plates, a 20-inch long piece of wax paper, tissue paper sheets that are blue, green, and white, and an Earth template printed in color) and a print-out of the craft instructions.
|Add a Tech Twist||NASA's Earth Day Image Gallery to celebrate Earth's beauty!|
|Hints for uses in your library||"Take & Make" tip: consider cutting out the middle of the paper plates prior to handing out the activity so patrons won't need to do that step at home.|
