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!

What a really beautiful idea to combine the joy of drawing and art with nature!
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.
What a cute idea. I bet the littles had a lot of fun with this.
Wow amazing idea ! I have a toddler,and due to lockdown it’s becoming super challenging to entertain her all day,I’m going to give this a try for sure!
I feel you!! It is such an easy activity that kills a lot fo time!
Beautiful tree made from all the nature collects. 🙂
This is such a fun idea. I have a toddler and she only collects rocks so I have to think about something.
What a lovely activity. I need to try it with my son he would love it
This is so cute! I am doing this with the little ones this weekend!
Yay!! Hope y’all have so much fun!

Thank you!! We love nature and crafts! So it was a win win!
This is such a great way to turn that walk into part of a bigger learning experience. I love it! I’m going to have to share this with my sister in law for my nieces!
I bet your nieces would love it!
My daughter is an art freak! She would think this is the greatest!
Oh my goodness I love this so much! I will have to do it with my son once he starts walking. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I love this idea! This would be a great craft to do with my young toddler class and I will definitely do it with them once when we get back to our center once we are in the yellow phase.
Awe this is a really cute idea! I love using nature to make art, and it looks like you’re having a good time at home.
Loving this post, I don’t have little ones but this sure sparked some ideas for me! haha
What an absolutely lovely idea 🙂 I might have to give this a try with my youngest. He’d love it!
This is such a creative activity. I think I’m gonna do this with my little one once it’s not too scary to go out anymore
This looks so fun! I can’t wait to try this with my nephew!
Oh this is actually a really great idea! It’s an amazing to help kids learn to identify what leaf belongs to what tree.
