“Something my kids absolutely LOVE to do is pick flowers,” notes Ashley at Cherished Bliss. “There is a state park close to us that is just gorgeous and the walking trails are covered in flowers. I made this little Burlap Flower Carrier for them to take on our walks and gather up as many flowers as their heart’s desire!” This is a simple project that can be made with things you probably already have on hand–starting with a couple of sturdy twigs!
Kim from Too Much Time On My Hands has a unique tree topper that she crafted from sticks that she and her kids collected one day on a hike. That’s right–sticks! Totally free for the taking and no need to run to the crafts store for those babies!
