Happy Spring! Since the weather feels like the season it is, head outdoors and celebrate Spring by making Nature Faces.
This is a creative way to explore nature with children. Grab a bag and take a walk around your neighborhood. Collect natural materials from your yard, a local park or while hiking. Almost anything can be used to create faces — sticks, leaves, pine cones, rocks, acorns, seeds, flowers, etc. Kids can sort or count the items before they begin. Arrange your found objects into faces (or robots, aliens…) Optional: Use chalk to outline the face first. Make your nature family then take a picture to document it.
