Nature Sun Catcher. I think this is a great idea because it allows children to use their creativity and exploration skills to find materials and put it all together to create artwork. Also, children can use their sense of touch and sight, to see how the objects can come together into a sun catcher.

Nature bracelet. Put tape on a child's arm(sticky side out), so they can chose materials from nature to decorate their bracelet with. I think this is a great activity, because it allows children to use their imaginations freely.
