Nature Collage

The other day we went for a walk and collected many different items from nature. Piper is really into examining everything outside whether it's a rock or a bug. We picked different wildflowers and collected small rocks. We even found a couple of different pinecones that had not been ruined from last fall. I got some leaves off of trees for her, and she picked up sticks and bark from the ground. She had a big bag of things to carry when we were finished.

Afterwards I let her glue the collection on to a piece of cardboard. In reality, she was more excited about squeezing the glue out of the bottle than putting the things on the board. I helped a lot by pressing things down so they wouldn't fall off later. She did like sprinkling the birdseed on at the very end and would have done that forever had I let her continue.

Neat project. Looks like she never let go of the glue...haha. Did she try to eat it? Hope not!
