For this activity you will need a paper plate and some sticky back plastic. You could also use a plastic pocket and some pva glue (which should dry clear!) or a laminator pouch and laminator.
- First go for a walk outside and collect petals, small leaves, twigs. Please try not to pick from someone’s garden! Look for petals on the floor, cherry blossom is just finishing so there should be some blowing about. Remember to NOT pick bluebells as they are a protected flower.
- Lay out your design on paper first to make sure you are happy. Then lay it on the sticky back plastic, clear pocket (available at supermarkets) or if you are lucky enough to have a laminator at home inside a laminator pouch.
- Cut out the inside of your paper plate and place over your design and secure it with either glue or stick tape.
- Hang up in your window and watch the colours shine in the sunshine.
You could use clear plastic bottles to sticking the leaves and petal to the inside of them. Investigate different ways in which you could create a sun catcher.
Alternatively you could make a nature collage with your findings. Use pva glue to stick together a picture as this will dry clear.
