Your kids will love this fun paper craft where they use their scissor skills and fine motor skills to create the land and sea of the Earth.

Kids will then use their letter recognition skills to arrange the lettered hearts in the right order to spell out their names.

If they’re using blank hearts instead, they’ll practice their handwriting skills by writing the letters in their names onto the hearts.

First, let’s grab our left land mass piece. We’re going to line it up with the left side of our Earth template. Once it’s aligned, help your kids spread some glue on the back of the land mass and press it down onto the Earth.

Next up, we have the right land mass. Similar to the first step, line it up with the right side of the Earth. With a dab of glue, secure it in place.

Now, let’s take the smallest land mass. This little piece is going to find its home on the right side of the Earth, just slightly below the last land mass we attached. A small amount of glue will do the trick to glue it to the water.

Finally, the most special step of all – spelling out your child’s name along the bottom of the Earth using heart letters. This is where your kids can practice spelling their names.
