Nature Craft Bookmark Making
My daughter went pond dipping with her brownie group last night in our little local wildlife trust reserve. She had such a good time, was completely filthy and full of tales ( as she normally) is. i do love to see the girls giggling in their colourful wellie,s a proper childhood unplugged time, just outdoors and having fun. Keeping it simple.
She has something clutched in her hands ..look what I made you mummy she declared and even at (just 6 more sleeps) almost 10 she is proud as punch at items she crafts for me.
She had been given a little strip of card with double sided tape cu in a strip down the centre. Allowed to pick fallen flowers and leaves only, the girls had been encouraged to pop their finds onto their card and make a little books mark. How cute is my bookmark and such a simple and fun activity.
If you have kids who are not to keen to go out on a nature walk this is a really lovely thing you can do with them whilst out that will encourage them to be both mindful and observant and distract them from how far you have made them walk! Perhaps.
