    Pressing flowers

    Creating "nature" pictures using leaves on recycled paper

    Creating birdhouses-either make them or buy them pre-made and have the children paint them...once dry, hang on trees

    If you live in an area which has vines, gather a bunch of smaller ones together and have the children weave wreaths.  Decorate with leaves, pinecones and ribbons.

    Create pinecone bird treat ornament.  Take one pinecone, tie a string at the top, coat with peanut butter or lard, and roll in birdseed or sunflower seeds.  Hang up.

    Pick dandelions and daisies.  Weave into flower crowns.  (Not recommended for kids with allergies!)

    Have the children gather nuts-walnuts, acorns, pecans-and using googly eyes and/or pipe cleaners, make small animals or creatures.

    Have the children find chalk (in areas where it is plentiful) and draw pictures using 'natural' chalk rocks!  They can also paint themselves using chalk pigments.

    If you live in an area with natural clay, gather it together and make it wet enough to manipulate.  Allow the children to create sculptures using clay and let air dry.  It might take several days for the project to be completely dry.  Paint.  Spray with clay pot or acrylic sealer.

    An old time favorite is to paint rocks! For the 4th of July I had the kids at our party paint red, white and blue ladybugs on rocks! They came out awesome!

    Leaf rubbings are quite interesting as well. Collect a bunch of leaves and press one side of them into a paper plate that has paint spread about before pressing each leaf onto a piece of paper.

    This technique would make nice fall leaf collages made into placemats. After pressing several types of leaves into various fall color paints onto a piece of paper, allow to dry. Cover the paper with clear contact paper on both sides to protect the beautiful art work!
