Sometimes seeing your family in a very cute format makes you feel cheerful. At the beginning we created very small family with mum, dad and a baby, but then my second boy offered me to add our baby and his big brother. I hadn’t realized until that moment that he created his own family. So it turned out our weekend fun to craft our family who was enjoying hammock in a forest on a rainy day. 😊
Nature makes everything look adorable, right?! You can prepare your own card to send on special days to your besties. ❤️ Or you can put this little art into a tiny frame to hang on the wall. 🌼🌼🌼 Don’t forget to drop a lovely note under your craft!
You can use any material for line tracing activity. Just draw lines on a cardboard and trace them with stones, sea shells, etc. This time we chose summer theme.
If you want to have a walk with your kid, you can have better time together in nature by creating nature faces. You need nothing but nature to be creative.
Acorns are great for making DIY decorations. This time we used nail polishes to color them.
After dressing up the acorns with fabrics, we decided to use yarns to wrap some acorns, too. They turned out so beautiful and as everyone said they really looked like colorful lights. Using a piece of branch we turned them into a nice DIY decoration.
I feel very happy when my kids come to me with an idea. One day when I went to pick up my son from kindergarten, I saw an acorn in his hand and asked to him about his plan with this acorn and he said to me that he was planning to glue googly eyes on it and then be friend with it.
Painting a pine cone is not as easy as it seems actually, but the result is perfect so it is really worth. Especially if the paint meets with the glitter then pine cones turn into a fabulous crafts. They are hanged on our outdoor wall and look awesome.
At home I drew this branches randomly and we went for a walk in the forest to be able to find our aim branches. Of course we couldn’t find exactly the same ones but tried to find very similar ones at least. This is the result. My boys were so excited and they had great time in the nature.
Now we have a branch collection hanging on our door and open to the public.
As craft lovers, autumn is our favourite season, because it is the hit time to find many different colors and resources in the nature. Luckily in Finland there are hundreds of forests and one of them is just a few steps away from our home. Acorns are great for crafting and creating DIY ornaments.
