Nature Walk and Art Activity

Anyone else taking 100 walks a week?! We are!! Millie always loves to bring her blue bucket and collect all the things! I decided to do an art project with some of the things we collect on our walks. This week our theme is BIRDS so I decided to add that to our craft too!

We take walks around the neighborhood and two or three days a week we go someplace fun like the lake or another area. On our walks we always collect leaves, flowers, rocks, sticks, and more! Millie always wants to bring them inside, but I never let her…worst mom ever…I know. This time I let her. Yay!

The art project is super easy. What you will need: card stock, brown construction paper, glue stick/glue, and the items we found on our walk! Since our theme was birds I printed off bird pictures off the internet to cut out and put in our trees.

If you have littles they will need a bit more help, but older kids can do most of this by themselves. I cut out the tree and had Millie use the glue stick to glue it on the paper. After we used regular glue to glue the leaves on the tree, as well as the bird. We added grass to the bottom with crayon. Super simple and cute. Two activities in one. If you can’t go on a nature walk you can always find things in your yard too! You could add other animals too- like squirrels!

I free hand cut the tree
Working on those fine motor skills
Picking out the best ones
Looking good!
Millie told me she wanted a purple bird so that is what she got!

    Too cute! I can see small kids loving this. My kids are older and we do enjoy going on walks when it’s cool out. We’re in Texas so it’s gotten rather hot.
