Nature Ornaments

Head outside with your child and create a nature collection! Help your child wrap string or rubber bands around a piece of cardboard, then explore your backyard. Encourage your child to look for natural items that they find beautiful to tuck under the bands. (Wonderful fine motor practice for small hands!) Finally, bring it inside to enjoy for days to come.

More ideas to try. . .

  • For older children, space the bands and encourage weaving
  • Yarn, string, thread, ribbon
  • Tear and tuck scraps of newspaper, magazine, or wrapping paper
  • Cinnamon sticks and fresh herbs
