Spring Nature Hunt Flower Craft

Spring Fun!

We have been loving the warmer weather recently.  Digging up worm, running around the yard, and playing in the dirt is happening daily around here!
 
We went for a Nature Hike one day recently and took along a bucket to collect all kinds of fun Spring-y items: flowers, acorn tops, tree buds, blossoms...

 
When we got back to the house, we did a little crafting with our Spring Treasures. 
I cut out some tulip shapes from cardstock and contact paper.  The kids created a collage of our collected items.
 
Baby Girl (18 months) loved this activity!
 
((look at those knuckle dimples!  The chubby belly! The dirty fingernails! I can't stand the cuteness in this picture!!))
 

The kids stuck the nature treasures onto the contact paper and we glued the cardstock to the contact paper to keep the little bits in place.
 
 
 We taped a green popsicle stick to each flower and placed them into a basket of paper filler.
 

It's a pretty Spring reminder of our fun Nature Hike!


 
Have you gone on a Nature Hike this spring?  Found any treasures?  What did you do with them?

  6. Thank you for this wonderful idea. This is an ideal activity this summer for younger kids. This looks like so much fun. Fun art projects for kids, crafts and other creative activities does not only create closer ties within the family, but also develop essential skills and new perspectives.
