Nature Bracelets

What could be better than taking a walk out in nature on a beautiful Summer day? Try collecting treasures and making something beautiful…to wear…instantly as you walk! This is a perfect activity for a three year old on up…I certainly had fun!


Supplies needed:
-duct tape ( try clear or white) masking tape works pretty well too
-grass, leaves, seed pods, flowers, petals

To create a beautiful one-of-a-kind nature bracelet:
– rip a piece of tape to fit over the wearer’s wrist with enough room for it to slide off
-if using duct tape for a tiny wrist, cut/rip the tape in half down the long strip to make a narrower bracelet.
-connect the sides with the sticky side facing out and the smooth side against skin
-go for a walk
-collect treasures and add them to your wrist as you go
-admire your/your child’s handy work and give thanks for all of the beauty at your finger tips
