It is the perfect time of year to go on nature walks in Australia. Collecting whatever bits and pieces of nature you find along the way.
But, what do you do with the collection once you’ve got it all home?
We sometimes try sticking it to paper for some creative art pieces or to plaster of paris like this.
We have a bit of a beachside nature collection thing going on our bathroom shelf.
This photo is of my daughter exploring her Granny’s ‘Nature Box’ which has developed over my life time. It even includes a dried frill-necked lizard and a sheep skull!
Yesterday we started our own ‘nature box’ containing a few insect wings and some seed pods. Although it doesn’t hold anything quite as creative as Granny’s ‘nature box’, we will certainly be on the lookout!
How do you bring a bit of nature in to your house?
