This article is just one I thought was pretty cool. Haven't done it yet, however have done outside things similar to this like take a plant pot and having my daughter make a bouqet with dried up leaves before (be neat). Also, my daughter, her grandmother, and I have planted seeds in egg shells before.

A couple of weeks ago we took a hike in the mountains and collected lots of pine needles, sticks, twigs and a large collection of colorful leaves. I was racking my brain trying to think of something NEW to do with them. We decided to make art pieces out of them!

Crazy Nature Man, Butterflies, Hearts, Bird In a Tree and Leaf Pile, were the names of all of our fun creations. Such easy preparation and clean up for this activity. All you need is some construction paper, glue and your collection of things from nature! It is good to teach your kids that love Arts & Crafts that we don’t always have to go out and buy something to do a fun project, that you can just use Nature around you!
