I originally intended this activity to be making nature wands: thread as much as you can onto a pipe cleaner – leaves, flowers etc. But my son decided that it should become a bracelet – and I loved that idea even more!
We ventured out into the back yard, and walked around collecting as many different kinds of leaves as we could. Because I was with him, I allowed him to pull leaves from growing plants and trees – just this once!
It was so much fun to see how many different types of leaves we could find! Note: Watch out for nettles, poison ivy, or anything with spikes! We decided to just use leaves, because neither of us wanted to pick the flowers!
And mine – slightly more elegant… 🙂Leaf Bracelets - a fun nature activity with kids Click To Tweet
