Here’s a beautiful collection of arts and crafts using real flowers and flower-themed sensory play.
Real flower arts, crafts and sensory play
Nature makes the best sensory play materials.
Whether you’re crunching through autumn leaves, collecting shells in a rock pool, or mixing up cakes in a mud pie kitchen, Mother Nature offers us so many interesting materials to explore.
I love to bring the outside in and use natural materials in our art, crafts and sensory play.
This is a gorgeous collection of ideas to do just that.
Gather some flowers and use them for making and playing, and give your children the benefit of a close connection with nature.
