our family loves collecting bits and pieces on nature walks. the little man is into finding the perfect stick, hubby is often on the lookout for amber whenever we visit the beach. i have always liked the idea of bringing the outside in, especially when we lived in the heart of the city it made me feel more connected to the natural world. fall is the perfect season for collecting, and even the junebug started picking up acorns whenever we walked down the street, our little stoop slowly being covered by quite a number of acorns and chestnuts.
what are your favourite crafts to make with nature finds? we were thinking of a shadow box, or possibly a little fairy garden. any other ideas out there??
