Sometimes mothers need nature playtime too and that's exactly what I did. It was lovely moving the natural materials around on the page. I must make nature mandalas more often β™₯

These wooden texture stamps are so easy to make. Essentially they're imprints made into the wood. They make super pretty stamps and they're the perfect size for little hands. πŸ˜šπŸƒ link in bio

Drill holes in some gumnuts and then let your children paint them. They will love using their fingers tips to string them onto the chord. Finish if off and make it a gumnut bracelet or necklace fir your child to wear!

You don't have to spend a fortune on weaving looms because it's super simple to make your own! All you need is a wooden photo frame! πŸ˜šπŸƒ Find out how to make them by going to the link in my bio.⬆ #weaving #natureweaving

I adore this photo and l think it's because I still have this leaf safely tucked in between the pages of a good book. I am careful with it but it's lasted quite a long while as my page marker. It continues to brings me joy almost every day. #lovenature #booklover #naturerocks

My word those colours! This pic is thanks Emma at @play_at_home_mummy with a beautiful idea to reuse rubber bands to make a simple nature weaving tool for kids. Love, love, love! Pop over to her feed and if you like what you see, follow her!

If your child is learning colours, this is a fun way to do it! Grab some adorable alphabet stamps (you can usually find them at an art shop) and help your child stamp the letters on the different coloured leaves. So much fun! πŸƒ

These Father's Day Cards are so easy to prepare, simple to make and look spectacular when made by the kids. There's only a few days left until Father's Day (if you're in the US) so get some beautiful natural materials from the garden and start gluing πŸ˜™πŸƒ Link in bio

I saw the most glorious green leaves today that reminded me of our Hungry Caterpillar craft. I do wish I could make the whole story book using leaves. One day I'd like to give It a go. It would be glorious! #theveryhungrycaterpillar #ericcarle #nature craft

It's been quite wet where we are. So much so that the grass at the back of our house squelches as we walk through it to get to the nature reserve out the back. It's a perfect day to float boats down the creek. 😊 β›΅ #rain #wetweather #outdoorplay

I found this beautiful moss-filled shell on my daughter's window sill. It was no longer this beautiful. The moss had died, it was so dry that it crumbled around the edges when my hand leant on it as I picked it up. I remembered it like this and it made me sad. I cleaned it out with an old toothbrush and this weekend i'll fill it with something new. Perhaps a native violet, another bit of moss or just some pretty sand. It doesn't take much to bring something back to life, and it doesn't take much to change my sad mood happy. #lovenature. πŸƒ

Time to learn how to measure and we didn't need any expensive educational materials for that. All we used was a ruler and nature. πŸƒ #natureplay #naturalmaterials #loosepartsplay
