What You’ll Need
- Earth Day worksheet
- Acrylic hearts
- Play Doh (store bought) or homemade playdough (see our easy recipe here) would also be fun
- Pom poms or buttons would also be a fun alternative to use
- Laminator (optional)
- Laminating sheets (optional)
- Or, instead of a laminator, you can use sheet protectors
- 3 ring binder to store the printables (if you placed them in sheet protectors) or folders to store the printables if you laminated them
What to Do
Begin by downloading and printing the Earth Day worksheet (link below).
We recently signed up for the HP Instant Ink program and are loving it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them.
We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty printing out new printables and playdough mats each day.
If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you one free month.
You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices).
Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.
Sometimes we laminate our activity sheets and sometimes we slip them into sheet protectors and tuck them in a 3-ring binder. Laminating is a bit more durable but if your little ones aren’t too rambunctious with their playdough mats, sheet protectors should work just fine.

Earth Day Dice Game Playtime Ideas
To play, simply place the worksheet out for your child, along with some acrylic hearts, playdough, beads, buttons, or pom poms, and invite your child to roll the dice, add the numbers together, and place that many hearts (or beads, or playdough hearts, or pom poms) on the Earth.
Miss 2, 5, and 8 helped me with this activity. For Miss 2, I only rolled one die and then we counted together and placed that many hearts on the Earth printable.
You could also modify this dice game in other ways and subtract the smaller number from the larger number and place that many numbers on the globe.
We used acrylic hearts with our Earth Day counting worksheet but it would also be fun to make or buy a batch of red playdough and shape a bunch of mini hearts from the dough and place those on the globe.
Or, you could use red pom poms, buttons, beads, or simply draw hearts on the globe with a dry erase marker.
Whether you use things you already have at home or buy something new to use with this activity, your child will no doubt have fun learning either way!
