Like most kids, my boys love to collect leaves, sticks, stones and all kinds of treasures from the great outdoors. While playing, they often find these special pieces of nature that they want to save so we decided to make a simple nature collection bag craft to give them somewhere to stow all their treasures while they are playing.
I put together a quick printable too for them to use to document their finds. You can download this printable at the end of this post.
To make our nature collection bag, we used a selection of ribbons and felt flower and nature shapes and a plain white paper bag. We stuck everything together using a Bostik Glue Pen
We just laid out everything how we wanted, then used plenty of glue to stick it into place and left it to dry so that everything was stuck on firmly. The bag was so easy to make, and your kids can use whatever decorations and designs you prefer to easily customise it to themselves. You could also try using fabric scraps and Bostik fabric glue.
Nature Collection Printable
Kids can use this printable to write and draw the special things they have found outdoors and collected in their nature bags.
Happy nature collecting!
