Nature Craft Blog

All kids have an innate ability to experiment and create, but sometimes they need a little prompting and direction to begin. Ideas in this nature craft blog and my books are a great starting point.

Instructions for the nature crafts are deliberately brief and loose, as the intention is to encourage experimentation and creativity rather than replication. With encouragement and opportunity, children’s imaginations will bring their own crafty ideas to life!
