Dyeing silks with Golden Yarrow: ๐ŸŒผ - add a handful of fresh Golden Yarrow to the pot
๐ŸŒผ - cover with rain water
๐ŸŒผ - simmer on low for an hour ๐ŸŒผ - let cool then add silks
๐ŸŒผ - bring up to temperature and simmer on low for another hour.
I let my silks cool with the dye bath, then ring them out and hang them to dry BEFORE rinsing them ๐ŸŒผ

Mordant your silks first if you want a more permanent color. I don't think this step is necessary for play silks, because they don't really get washed, but we used silks that I had already pre-mordanted a while back...

A pumpkin flower gently stamped to a canvas bag. I first attempted this with a rubber mallet, but that shredded the flower. Using my fingers to gently press the flower all around, while rubbing a bit on the edges achieved the best result. #naturecrafts

We were collecting and pressing flowers this afternoon, we're planning on making sun catchers with them once they've dried #pressedflowers #naturecrafts #flowers #kidsoutdoors #kidsgardening

Remember we promised to tell you what we have been using all those egg cartons for? Well, we have been taking them on the road to our Summer Library programs, the theme of which is "River Builders: Exploring Nature's Best Engineers"! Kids have been using them to make some pretty awesome osprey nests! Check with your local library to see if we will be coming to your town! #libraryfun #nhsummerfun #naturecrafts

I loved and was inspired by @littlepinelearners lavender play dough. We made up a batch yesterday and after our park adventure today, came home with some bits and pieces we found. A and L discovered the different impressions in the dough and created their "Nature islands" #homeschool #homeschoolaustralia #homeeducation #nature #lavender #playdough #naturecrafts #naturekids
