Who needs to buy toys when you can play with bits of nature?

There's been loads of playing with bits of nature around here recently.


A banana leaf tent was hugely popular. I simply tied banana leaves onto a sawhorse.


The bark that recently fell from Little Eco's fairy seats became a canvas for chalk drawing.



A paint pen turned a quick beach trip into a crafting activity, with Little Eco creating her own story stones (can you tell she's drawn our dog?).


Have a look around. What bits of nature could your children play with?
