Forgot to stock up on construction paper and pipe cleaners while you were frantically filling the shopping cart last? Not to worry, these gorgeous nature crafts for kids require materials that are abundant and free for the taking for anyone who can still sneak out for a little nature walk. Ainsley Arment is the founder of Wild and Free, an online community of creative mothers and homeschoolers who have been sharing tips and inspiration on fostering the adventure, freedom, and wonder of childhood for years. Ainsley’s latest book is Wild And Free Handcrafts, and features 32 gorgeous craft projects, organized by season, that make magic out of all those sticks, rocks, shells, and feathers that seem to populate every young child’s jacket pocket. The book comes out today, March 24, and there seems no better time that the present to take an extra moment to appreciate Mother Nature’s bounty and to get working with your hands. Ainsley has shared 4 of her favorite crafts with us here, from a whimsical fairytale tree house to the prettiest spring suncatchers. Click through the slideshow below for full project instructions and get crafting!
