In this day and age of technology, sometimes you just need to power everything down and get back to nature with your kids. Nature-themed craft projects are a great way to engage the kids and teach them a little about the world around them. Instead of sacrificing another day to the TV or computer, take the kids on a nature walk one afternoon and have them collect different twigs, leaves, flowers and rocks that they find. Once you arrive back home, use these supplies to create craft projects that highlight the beauty of nature. These 24 blogs will help you get started.

Getting Crafty with Leaves

As you explore the great outdoors, encourage the kids to look closely at the different leaves they see. Each type of leaf will have a different texture and shape. Collect all sorts of leaves on your hikes, and then use those leaves to create different artistic pieces. You’ll find ideas for pictures, suncatchers and more in these six blogs.

Shells and Sand

If you live near a beach or visit one frequently, you may already have a collection of sea glass, shells and sand. If not, be sure to collect as many as you can during your next beach adventure so that you can bring the beach home with you. From crafts as simple as gluing some googly eyes on the shells and making shell friends to more elaborate ones like necklaces, the bloggers in these six posts have come up with several sea shell craft ideas for you to choose from.

Flower Fun

There’s no telling what kinds of flowers you and your child will find while out on your nature hike.

You can keep the flowers fresh until you get home by bringing along a damp paper towel and wrapping the blooms in it. Once home, use these six blog posts for flower craft inspiration.

Sticks and Stones

Sticks and stones are probably the simplest things to find during your nature walk, and you’ll likely see a variety that are interesting shapes and colors.
