Nature faces: This is a fantastic flower craft AND activity using items that you and your child search for and collect while out on a walk in nature.
Set out, with your kids, on a nature hunt in your yard or neighbourhood, and make art with the garden treasures that you collect along the way! Leaves, flowers, seed pods and twigs can all be used to create these adorably goofy nature faces.
There’s something about looking for treasures that turns an ordinary walk around the neighbourhood into something exciting and magical. Especially when your treasures into art, like we did with these nature faces.
The older Hooligans had a great grasp on where to glue their eyes, noses and mouths to make their faces, but to make sure the little ones ended up with something that looked like a face, I helped them lightly mark 2 eyes, a nose and a mouth on their cardboard. Then they knew where to squeeze their glue (they’re getting so good at that! It’s amazing how much they develop over the course of a year!), and where to stick their flowers and leaves.
Another free and easy idea for you and your kiddos to enjoy together, that will get you out of the house and strolling around your neighbourhood and gardens too! 🙂
