Sticks & Stones: 5 Outdoor Craft Ideas for Kids
Crafting with natural materials provides a wonderful excuse to get outside and explore. (Plus, the supplies are free!) These rustic projects will inspire plenty of fresh-air activity as your kids search for the perfect rocks and branches to paint, wrap, weave, and arrange just so.
Tree Hugger 8
I'm just learning how to crochet, but I made it up as I went along! "Tree Hugger" was made for Jumpers and Jazz in July, a textile arts festival in Warwick, QLD, Australia. The deciduous trees in the CBD of the town are dressed in colourful textile creations (or "jumpers" - Australian for sweaters) for the duration of the mid-winter festival. www.jumpersandjazz.com
