As we enjoy warmer weather and longer walks, bring some of the outdoors back in with you for this week’s #STEAMwork nature spotlight. Create beautiful scenes, fun animals, and whatever else you can imagine with materials from nature or whatever you have around the house! [Important PSA, dreamers: remember to be kind to nature and never pluck without permission.]

material ideas for your nature collage:

Glue, tape, or any adhesive

Plain paper or lightweight cardboard

Magazines, old books, or junk mail to cut pictures, colors, or scenes out of

Scraps of paper (if you don’t have magazines)

Leaves, sticks, small rocks, or anything from nature (remember to be kind to nature when scoping out materials!)


alternative or optional materials:


Hot glue gun

Recycled Materials (egg cartons, toilet paper rolls)
