nature bracelets

Got masking tape?
A sidewalk nearby?
With leaves or flowers on the ground?

Then you too, can make super cool nature bracelets like Sadie and I did the other day. I don’t remember where I first saw this idea, but luckily it popped into my head the other day when I was trying to think of something to do. It was a gorgeous morning, so I didn’t want to stay indoors. You just wrap some masking tape (loosely) around your child’s wrist (I did one too), sticky side out.

Then put on your coolest shades, throw your hair in a sloppy ponytail, and go for a walk! We found flowers, leaves, small rocks…insects…(just kidding on that one)…and stuck them to our “bracelets”, for a fun little activity.

Just make sure not to pick your neighbor’s flowers…they probably wouldn’t appreciate that too much, even if your kid is cute.

Here’s mine…kinda sparse, Sadie’s was jam-packed with flowers, leaves, grass, sand, and a little pebble. She kept saying “petty baylet”. It was too cute!

….and just cause she’s cute…here’s a picture of her swinging to her heart’s content. :D
