Who doesn’t love a nature craft? It’s such a versatile and wondrous way to get the kids outside to explore their surroundings and to get creative with the things around us.
We decided that we wanted to make use of some of the meadow flowers in our garden before we mowed the lawn. It’s very important to not pick flowers unless they are in your own garden and to let others enjoy their beauty and leave them to do the important job of providing a home and food for bugs and insects that rely on them.
As we live in a church
with a graveyard which is overgrown, we currently have an abundance of meadow flowers. We have left these to grow throughout the spring to enable them to disperse their seeds so they come back in full force next year. But it’s nearly time to cut the grass in preparation for the summer months, so we decided to make use of some of them before they disappear.
Firstly I used some cardboard to make some Easter themed cut-outs: some eggs and bunnies. I then used a skewer to poke some holes into them to enable us to poke our flowers into.
Then we headed out into the garden to collect some flowers. It was such a lovely day that we sat on the grass in the sunshine to make them.
And they turned out fab! Even Boo, 3, made one too! Nature is such a wonderful thing to get creative with!
Ir was such a lovely activity and easy for all ages to take part in. You could press your creations in a book so they last forever too!
We have lots of Springtime activities to inspire you. Take a peek as you may find something you like.
