Process Art Earth Day Activities for Preschoolers

We love process art projects! Process art projects focus on using different materials and mediums to encourage kids to get creative and explore art in new ways.

Unlike traditional preschool crafts, process art focuses on the process, not the finished product. In this way, kids are able to let loose and engage with their art without worrying about what it will look like in the end.

Earth Day is the perfect time to explore process art with preschoolers because kids can reuse and reimagine old materials to create new art. Just like they will with the Painting with Kitchen Utensils Process Art Activity.

Plus, this Earth Collage for Little Kids makes a great bulletin board for Earth Day in the classroom.

Then, get out your painting supplies and get ready for some messy fun with Swirl World Invitation to Create Process Art Experience, a process art painting project for preschool kids.

Earth Day Sensory Activities for Preschoolers

Another one of my favorite projects for Earth Day is this Earth’s Water Sensory Tray which explores water conservation in a way that’s easy for kids to understand.

Plus, it provides an amazing sensory learning experience that will engage your preschoolers and get them excited about conserving water. Make it real by having kids practice conserving water while washing hands.
