Gather Art Supplies on a Nature Walk

Head outside to find the materials for your next craft project! Have your child seek out naturally occurring colors, shapes, and textures. Then, once she has collected materials to her heart’s content, head to the craft table and help her puzzle together a picture or scene to encourage imaginative, out-of-the-box thinking. If you want to put the art on display, just buy a simple frame, remove the glass, and glue your child's earthy handiwork down. Looking for more crafty projects to try with your child?
