Nature Walk and Collage, Science Kids Craft

With fall on its way my family is enjoying spending more time outside playing. My daughter and I recently went on a nature walk around our yard and turned some of her favorite findings into a collage.  Going on a nature walk and making a collage created a great opportunity to teach my daughter about all the different living things we have in our yard.

We began with a short walk around pointing out different plants, leaves, grass, and rocks.

My daughter collected a few of her most interesting discoveries to make a nature collage.

We brought the discoveries inside and put them down on a piece of paper.  Then my daughter placed a piece of paper on top and colored to see the image from below.

We continued coloring using different pieces of the nature from our yard until the collage was complete.

I’m looking forward to doing this again as nature in our yard changes with different seasons. Keep the collage for another learning opportunity later when you have several from different months to compare.
