Nature Art

Arts and crafts are always a popular way to keep children engaged. To offer a new creative experience why not put the pencils and crayons to one side and look for natural art materials instead!

When you’re next out on your walk, collect fallen leaves, petals and sticks and use them to make a picture or sculpture.

Please make sure that you do not pick wild flowers as they are very important for local wildlife and some are protected by law.

You could even use the objects as ‘stampers’ or paintbrushes – dipping them in paint and rolling, brushing or stamping them on paper to create interesting patterns and effects.

We would love to see your creations, please send us your photos via Tapestry or email.
