There are so many beautiful wild flowers growing in fields and verges at the moment that I thought it was the perfect time for this little Nature Make.
All you need to do it cut a strip of card to fit your child's wrist and secure with sticky tape. Then, wrap double-sided tape around the outside and peel back to create a sticky surface. Press wild flowers such as daisies and dandelions as well as small leaves and grass heads onto the surface of the bracelet.
You can collect flowers and decorate your bracelet at home or alternatively, make the bracelet and wear when you're out on a walk, picking flowers to attach to it as you go.
Ava loved making her bracelet and wore it all day. By the time she took it off, the flowers had wilted so it was ready to throw away. This activity was great for fine motor development and we talked a lot about the names, colours and sizes of the different flowers.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN PICKING AND HANDLING UNKNOWN NATURAL MATERIALS. SUPERVISE CHILDREN TO ENSURE NOTHING IS EATEN AND WASH YOUR HANDS WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED.
If you have a go at this activity with your little ones then do share over on Instagram using #NatureMakesMondays.
