Flowers in bloom, birds shedding their feathers, blossoms falling, leaves dropping in the wind and twigs snapping. We can't help but make the most of our garden and woods around us at the moment. So here we present, our Colander Nature Crown! The premise is simple, pick some nature and thread them through your colander. The wilder the better! Here is are our offerings!

We did two separate crowns. One that was just floral. We kept the flowers to the ones we found locally, in our garden. The next was with feathers, leaves, reeds, twigs and a few plants from our garden. 

This nature activity is an easy way in to talking to your Little Feet about your local ecosystem, all the while having some hands on fun. Plus, everyone loves a little dress up!
