Simple Nature Bracelet

Sometimes the simplest activities turn out to be the best. This was the case recently when I headed outside with my 3 year old, to make a nature bracelet. We used to do this in the preschool I worked at several years ago, and it's a suitable activity for even the youngest children.

I helped him wrap the tape around his wrist, sticky side out. Then we took a walk around our neighborhood and yard to find leaves and objects to decorate it with.

After only a few minutes of adding leaves to his bracelet, my son decided a belt would be even better! He thought this was the best idea ever, and I had so much fun watching him as he decided to roll around on the ground to see what would stick to him.

Grab some packaging or masking tape and head outside with your little ones while the colors are bright and leaves are in abundance!

A beautiful fall day, some fresh air and laughs with the ones I love, and appreciating how my little ones continue to teach me to appreciate the simple things in life. It doesn't get much better than this!
