Seed Bracelets

 

Spring is a perfect time to explore the many plants, trees and flowers that make up our environment.  The seeds for these plants come in all different shapes, colors, textures, and sizes.  This month, use seeds to create a bracelet that lets you wear nature right on your wrist!

2. Wrap the piece of tape all the way around your wrist with the non-sticky side facing your skin and connect the ends together. (The sticky side should be showing.)  step_1.jpeg
3. Find an outdoor space like your backyard, a nearby park or your school yard, and explore for different types of seeds or small leaves.  
4. When you find an interesting seed or leaf, place it on your bracelet.  You can create different shapes or patterns using the natural items you find. seed_bracelet_small.jpeg
