We spent our afternoon on Friday walking through the Botanical Garden. We love to smell and discover new flowers, herbs and animals lurking or more like flying around them. This time we decided to make a nature bracelet to bring home with us from this trip. The nature bracelet will work for any walk, even if it is just down the street. You never know what you can find, especially with a curious toddler.
Take a piece of duck tape and attach it on your toddlers arm sticky side up
as you are going through your walk let them pick whatever they deem interesting
and attach it to their bracelet
It could be anything flowers, fruit, seeds, feathers, grass, rocks etc
my daughter enjoyed the finds but gave the bracelet to me while my son proudly wore his
mine consisted of a lot of flowers and a fruit, otherwise known as conversation starters. From what color is this? Could you get me a blue flower? To Fruit comes from the plant…. What other fruits do you know?
But mostly our walk was still a walk/run and not a botany class, they are 2.5 after all.
When done with your walk you can just snip the bracelet off and attach to your bulletin board or wall. Heck you can even mark it and see how many different interesting bracelets you can display. I can only imagine what you can find on the beach, campground or grandma’s back yard, provided she has one.
