Do you celebrate Earth Day with your students? If you do, and are looking for a fun, easy, FREE Earth Day project, you are in the right place!
*Pair this with our Spring Centers and Activities for PreK and Kindergarten!
These marble painted “earths in space” were a huge hit with my kindergarteners! After all, who doesn’t love marble painting?
Place the circle template (included at the end of this post) FACE DOWN in the tray. This ensures that the students can see the circle to cut out once it dries. If you paint on top of the circle – they can’t see it (I did that for the first one on accident!)
I also recommend taping down the paper to the tray so that it doesn’t slip around or lift up.

Put a few squirts of each color on top of the paper and about 4-5 marbles. Let the students roll away!
Take the paper out of the tray and let it dry. By the next day the students can easily cut out the circle (remember it is on the other side!).
Glue the “earth” on size 12×18 black construction paper near the top.
Have students complete the writing page “I can help the earth by:”
I chose to glue that down on half sheets of green for an extra bit of color – but you don’t have to.
