15 Minutes - Make & Create Outside
Head outdoors and get creative. Why not bring a Nature Journal too?
Take some interesting close up snaps of plants in your area
Flower or Leaf Pressings
Gather flowers or leaves for pressing- you could use them to make cards, to decorate favourite books or to make a print for their bedroom. Place a stack of heavy books on top, instead of using a flower presser-works just as well.
Create with leaves and flowers
Allowing the kids time for creative expression gives them great satisfaction - you'll want to join in too
Create with stones
Gather stones together outside and let your kids find their creativity through stones and pebbles. You could also set them up with paints and brushes outdoors, on the grass, patio or balcony, and they can let their creative juices flow.
Make a Nature Badge
Stick some tape to their jacket or t-shirt and stick on small items of their choosing. Adapt into a nature crown by sticking tape onto a cardboard strip and creating a crown to decorate.
