Quick Fall Outdoor Activity

Nature Arts & Crafts

Get the kids outdoor with this fun activity:

One of my favorites for the fall: We go for a nice hike in the woods and bring a bag to collect small items like pretty leaves, acorns, twigs, maple seeds, ferns and all kind of other stuff you can find out there.

Then at home the kids take a crafts paper that is pretty strong and make a collage of all their finds with lots of glue.

Let dry very well, and you have a very pretty art product --> All Natural ;-)
