Attention Grandparents: Nature Project to Make with the Grandkids

One of the blogs I follow closely is The Artful Parent.  Jean and her children make amazing crafts.  Jean has also published a couple of books about crafting that I would love to have.  

This post, An Easy Flower Suncatcher, is just right for Granddaughter #1.  She loves to pick flowers and leaves as well as sticks and stones.  We'll start with a collage and work our way to the little flower figures Jean shows on the blog.  

There are instructions and details on her post for the whole project and supplies. 

I can't wait for the next visit.  


  1. What a great idea and good site to know about! Funny, I saw those frames at Michaels just the other day.

  2. If an adult was crafty, they could make one, also. If flower petals would stick to a piece of framed glass.

    You'd not want to use glass, with a child though, I don't think.

    Anyway, it is a very, very pretty project. Much prettier than the usual sun catchers, one can buy.
