Hi all I hope you are doing well, Hello spring and this lovely warm weather we’ve been having ….hope I haven’t just jinxed it. We’ve been having lots of fun in the garden creating and making memories ours is rather unruly I must admit some of the crafts were easier than others we have used a lot of materials we just had lying around so cheap if not free the recycling bin is often a good spot to start
The found things spring art
Paper /card (whatever you have ) , colours, A little imagination
- Go around your garden/ or outdoor space and collect leaves, sticks bark, stones whatever takes your fancy and doesn’t damage the environment. My Children used a little plant pot we had lying around did take them long to fill it up.
- Look at all the found things and use your imagination. you can either stick it down or keep reusing it to make endless pictures.
- If you wanna get fancy you could use some of what you’ve found to make a collage.
Bird watching binoculars
You will need
Cardboard toilet roll tubes, scissors, string(again optional), any glue and optional decorations (Harrison used blue tissue paper from a parcel.
- source your materials.
- Glue the tubes together
- wait to dry and add sting.
step 4 is completely optional decorate them however you wish Harrison glued on tissue paper and gems and declared they are his bird goggles.
(Top tip if you’d rather make a telescope (or you have no glue) using 3 toilet roll tubes and slot them into each other )
There are so many possibilities, with a little imagination and a keen little maker hours of fun to be had. Hopefully not at the expense of the flower beds. Have a wonderful spring and thanks for reading Jade from Mummyandmex2.com
