Recreating nature with crafts
The children have been doing a spot of craft outside in the sunshine this week. They decided to create a nature scene with their Bostik Box. They had a good sort out of all their Bostik supplies before getting started.
They made snails by winding pipe cleaners around in a circle and attaching a small googly eye – two of these pipe cleaners stuck together completed the snail.
One of the little boys made a birds nest with a basket and some wooden beads and then with some help from their big sister they made a bird to go with the bird nest.
They used shredded paper for grass and made a hungry caterpillar out of twine and beads, attaching everything to thick brown paper.
They then used the fun foam butterflies and dragonflies to add to the scene, as well as making furry caterpillars out of pipe cleaners and big googly eyes.
Some blue felt completed the sky for the scene, they added the bird and nest and a few more foam creatures and their work of art was complete!
It was nice to be able to do this outside without everything blowing away.
