Make a Dryer Lint Earth. It's a Rumbly Tumbly Recycle Craft for Earth Day

It's all about Earth this month.  What better way to celebrate Earth's holiday than a Recycle Craft. This recycle craft is one of our most Eco friendly activities and an all time favorite for many.

Get the instructions here: How to make dryer lint clay

Now your ready to go, just collect some dryer lint and reuse it.  You can make lots of things with dryer lint clay, but we suggest you start by making a world.  Remember, as you are making it, think about how you are helping the Earth by reusing something that would normally get tossed and perhaps not biodegrade 100%.

Decorate with your dryer lint craft and reuse that decoration over and over again. Now you are practicing the 3 R's: Recycle, Reduce and Reuse!

There you go.  Now that's Earth Friendly and fun!

Who is Earthman?

Earthman is the most important Planetpal. He represents the whole planet. He cares for the plants and animals alike. Earthman is responsible for getting everyone involved, making them aware by educating and initiating action. Earthman doesn’t make things easy. He has the role of the taskmaster. He expects us to get to work and to work tigether. Discipline and responsibility are important to him, yet if we’re eager to conquer the world, he is there to help!

Earthman's poem:

Earthman says
Please listen to my friends 

we need your help
so the earth can mend

We all must try 
to care for the planet
trees and animals 
and everything on it
We should save our water 
try not to waste
keep things clean
not act in haste

If we keep the earth safe 
and squeaky clean
living things will be healthy

 and everything green.
