Three Nature Craft Ideas with Sticks

Kids Nature Crafts with sticks and twig crafts Our kids can’t seem to get enough sticks for their collection, so we put together some fun crafts to showcase their favourites and keep the collection at bay.  Get step by step directions for making a leafy tree, a recycled can vase or pencil holder, and a stick person drawing – see instructions here

Kitchen with Kids – Squishing Tomatoes

Here’s a great tactile activity for home or at a sensory table in preschool.  Have the kids squish some tomatoes!  You can use fresh tomatoes and teach about composting while you’re at it, or use canned whole tomatoes.  Our kids loved the ooey gooey feeling of the tomatoes squishing through their hands, making us think this would be a great slimy activity for a Halloween party too!  Read what we did for this activity, or watch our tomato talk and the kids squishing.
