    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

      I did this today with my 22 month old. She had a blast and loved wearing the bracelet! She caught on to finding small objects near the end of our walk and learned some new names for natural objects. Thanks for this idea! We'll keep it in the arsenal.

      How sweet! I am going to do this with my daughter. She will love it! She's 20. And she'll love it anyway. :) When I do I'll blog it and post a link back to your blog. This has been one of my fave's so far, it is so simple and so sweet and will make my daughter smile.
