My daughter was off school sick the other day with a pretty nasty head cold. We decided to go out in the garden in the afternoon to get a little fresh air as she was starting to feel a little better. Whilst sitting there she decided she wanted to make a ‘nature face’.
Nature faces are a lovely simple activity to do outdoors. They are adapted from our nature pictures, and are a firm family favourite. They always produce individual unique results and you can make them as serious or silly as you like! All you need is a piece of paper and a pen…..everything else is found from Mother Nature!
Start by drawing a head and neck onto a piece of paper. Next go exploring to see what you can use for hair and facial features. Adult guidance will be needed to make sure everything is safe to pick up (and to stop anything being eaten)!
My daughter used grass and daisies for her nature girl’s hair, dandelion flowers for the eyes and mouth, and a leaf for the nose!
We had great fun making different faces and it certainly cheered up a poorly little girl for a while! You can use glue to stick the face down if you want to, or simply wipe everything off and make a new face!
I hope you all have a lovely Saturday!
