Collect and gather natural materials from the local environment and use them to create and decorate this bracelet.
- Assorted leaves
What to do:
Cut the cardboard into 10 cm long thin strip.
Wrap it around child's wrist to create a bracelet, remove and staple it together.
Encourage child to decorate and glue the leaves onto the cardboard bangle to create their nature bracelet.
The child has now created their very own nature bracelet!
Hints and Tips:
- If glue doesn't stick the leaves/flowers etc. you could stapler to staple them on the cardboard bracelet. This enables it too last longer than using glue as the natural items won't fall off.
- Aboriginal women gathered and arranged natural materials to make into tradition clothing, jewellery and cooking utensils. Clothing and jewellery that were made with these natural materials were worn by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women during traditional ceremonies.
