Day 01 #30DaysWild – Sticky Nature Pictures

by Sarah - Craft Invaders

Sticky nature cards are a really fun activity to take with you when you are out exploring nature. You can make them as simple or complicated as you like. Today we decided to do a #30DaysWild board, to celebrate the start of the Wildlife Trusts campaign, but they are equally effective in a simpler form as shown in our original Sticky Nature Cards post.

All you need is a piece of card and some double-sided sticky tape. Here we used 50mm tape stuck on to lettering, which we then stuck on to a piece of card. You can be as creative as you want. This is a great activity to have prepared in your bag for when you are out and about.

Walk (or rush madly if you are my kids) around an outside space and stick anything that takes your fancy to your board. I always remind my kids to only pick tiny pieces of growing plants so not to damage them.

It’s a great activity for kids to work on together.

You can set a theme such as leaf colours, different types of seeds, or just let the kids freestyle. We have a no creature rule just in case temptation comes their way!

Each season and habitat will give you a very different board, so it’s a great way to record the changing seasons and colours. There is also no reason why you couldn’t adapt this activity to include different objects. It is such a great way to get kids to engage with wild spaces, and it really helps them look closely at what is growing around them.

We had a wonderful afternoon exploring a local nature reserve, and making our board.

First off, your kids are adorable! And it looks like they have a great time together. I really like the finished project, it looks so springy! I’m sure a good time was had by all, an afternoon spent outside, and really looking at the things that are around us. I’m sure you found some cool stuff, nature really is amazing. Isn’t it?

It’s perfect for camping – it’s so easy to transport ready to go cards, and you can use the tape to make any shape you want 🙂

Looks good fun to me. I think you’ve made a good point about the seasons and picking little bits of flora and fauna. #CountryKids

Thanks Helena, yes its important not to pick so much that you damage the plants

This is indeed a perfect way to start 30 days wild! I absolutely love it! I’m going to get my kids to make one too (but when we get home as I’m in France at the moment and don’t know the French for ‘double sided tape’!!)#CountryKids

Sarah - Craft Invaders June 6, 2016 - 12:41 pm

Haha, that’d test my French too! It’s a lovely activity, we often do it and they always turn out different 🙂

This really is a great way to start your #30dayswild challenge. Getting your kids to interact with the nature they could find around them is fab. I might have to remember this activity for here on the farm, the kids could make their own collage’s to take home to remember the farm! Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

It’d be perfect for your visitors Fiona, and there’s loads of ways you could adapt it – it’s also really quick to set up. Thanks for having us x

Janet June 1, 2016 - 9:34 am

This looks great. Would like to give it a try – how did you do the lettering?

Reply
Sarah - Craft Invaders June 1, 2016 - 9:40 am

Hi Janet I printed them off in grey so I could just see them to cut around them (I reversed the lettering so the grey was on the back) and stuck the double sided tape to them before we cut them out if that makes sense, so the tape is facing up. Then stuck the letters to the cardboard with PVA glue. x

Janet June 2, 2016 - 5:19 pm
