Nature-Inspired Crafts for Kids

Whether you gather supplies in your neighborhood or at the crafts store, your kids will love bringing the outdoors inside with these easy natural crafts projects featuring supplies found in nature.
What You'll Need:

Twigs, twine, felt, scissors or hole punch, hot glue gun, outdoor trimmers (optional)

Make It:

1. Have your kids search your backyard for twigs of similar size. Or use outdoor trimmers to cut twigs to the same size.
2. Parents should handle the hot glue gun when gluing the twigs side-by-side together to make a raft. Attach a twig in an upright position for the mast.
3. Cut a sail from colorful felt. Fold the felt in half, cut two slits or punch two holes, and slide it over the mast. Then use twine to wrap the twigs on both sides for decoration.
