Nature Crafts for Kids
Here in my home daycare, we love crafting with items found in nature. It keeps our crafting costs down, and it provides the children with the opportunity to explore, examine and appreciate the natural world around them. Not to mention, hunting for items to use for a nature craft gives kids the perfect excuse to get outside, to go for a walk or a hike or even a neighbourhood treasure hunt.
From wind chimes and yard ornaments to sensory activities, nature art and Christmas ornaments, below, you'll find tons of crafts to make with natural items found in your own backyard or around your neighbourhood.
