Free craft supplies for Easy Crafts for Kids 10! Take a stroll in nature with us, you'll be amazed at what you will find and what you can create with it! There is really no better place to look for craft supplies than in good old Mother Nature herself, yup right off the floor that's where she leaves us more creative supplies than we can ever use!
Let's take a peek at what we are about to create today...
We try to collect things that have fallen from trees and are on the ground! We do not disturb our free craft suppliers! We do not break branches, trees, scrubs or pick wild flowers! There are more than enough supplies on the ground to collect!
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Colorful, shapely and different sizes of leaves. All kinds of seeds, grasses, sticks, twigs, fir cones, nutshells, acorns, bird feathers and little pebbles and stones. Try to find plenty of matching pieces. Grab a little basket and off you go to collect!
Lay out your collection and see your creativity come alive! I find it easier when I sort them a bit to find matching sizes, lengths and shapes, especially if you want two sides to match.
LET'S CREATE BUGS: (Image below)
...and what do you have? A BUG!!
Cherry stalks do make great bug legs!
Roll a variety of shapes and sizes for clay bodies and heads. Air dry clay works best, you can get this from craft stores or make your own. I have an air dry clay 'play list' on YOUTUBE, with plenty of ideas and air dry clay recipes if you want to check it out. Normal play dough can also be used as a substitute.
Use different types of leaves, twigs and seeds to create many types of wonderful little bugs. Basically, the leaves are what creates the different wing types, the small seeds are wonderful for eyes, while the bigger ones, as well as their shells are great for the bodies and different grass types and twigs make great antennae and legs. These are also great to create some texture on the bodies.
So you DON'T like BUGS and creepy CRAWLIES!
Make this awesome OWL MASK from all kinds of leaves! It's great for carnivals, concerts and dress-up parties too!
MAKE THE OWL MASK:
You can also use some bird feathers that you have collected from the ground to add that special feathery touch to your owl mask!
If you are not much of an artist and drawing your own mask or creating your own mask template won't be part of the fun, the outline of this mask template from First Palette will work fine. I would only cut the eyes more oval, as in the images above. You can download this mask template here print and cut out, then outline onto your cardboard.
