Creating with natural materials

Last week, our Discover and Explore crew asked our fellow bloggers to link up their favorite posts about creating with natural materials.  Today I am sharing a few of the posts that I found to be really interesting and unique…

Discover and Explore

Danya Banya shared these awesome painted seed pods.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen seed pods this big before in our area!  But we do have some flat, long seed pods that would also be really cool painted…

Now, I’m very familiar with this next material.  I mean, who hasn’t thrown these little seed pods into the air, pretending they are miniature helicopters floating to the ground?  But I had certainly never considered using them for art or play.  Lalymom shared many ways to play  and learn with helicopter seeds

When exploring in nature, we all know that sticks are simply irresistible to young children.  Crafting Connections shared this fantastic walking stick craft that would thrill the smallest of adventurers…

Our children are big fans of the light table so we are always trying to think of unique materials to explore, but this was a new to one to me.  Where Imagination Grows shared these beautiful DIY nature slides

Thank you for featuring our Seed Pod Paintings! And I love the nature slides! A light box is number #176 on my to-make list, but I think I might have to bump it up a bit so that I have an excuse to make these slides as well. :)
