Natural Craft Creations!

Wednesday, February 22nd 2017

Today was the first of our family half term activities: Natural Craft Creations! We started off going for a walk with journey sticks, collecting memoirs of our travels and craft materials for later.

This was followed by creative crafts in earnest, with an array of activities to enjoy! We made teasel hedgehogs…

…Created mosaic portraits of parents/grandparents/guardians using natural materials...

…Here some of the artwork, artists and their muses!

We made bird friendly mobiles, providing both food and nesting material for our feathered friends:

There was also a little time to use the natural shapes of branches to create stick people!

Everyone went away with wonderful creations – here are just some of the participants, with some of their crafts!

Thank you to Ruth, Ann and Elizabeth who helped us to run this event – as some feedback left in our visitors book said: It was a ‘magical morning’!
