This wearable project only requires two things: masking tape and natural materials (such as flowers and leaves). Children can go for a walk outside to collect their own nature items, or you can set up this activity by collecting them beforehand. Help children get the masking tape on their wrist (sticky side up), and then allow them to stick on different items to create a beautiful and colorful bracelet.

No paint? No problem! Nature has lots of natural colors that can be transformed into paint. Children can use flowers, fruit, leaves, rocks, or any other items that are available in your yard to make marks on paper. The final product will be a beautiful, natural work of art. Children can use their hands, or they can take off their shoes and socks to smash with their feet for a unique sensory experience.

*Another fun way for children to enjoy this project is to allow them to use small, child-friendly hammers to bang and smash the flowers to add different patterns to their projects.
