Crafting with the kids

It is coming up to the long school summer break.  What are you going to do to keep them occupied this year?   Why not take them for a walk and gather some different dried grasses and a few feathers... if they aren't keen on handling feathers then take a clothes peg along.  They can use that to pick up the feathers. When you get home spread a couple of sheets of newspaper on the floor or table and let them paint  the feathers and grasses.

My friends grandchildren had great fun painting these with me
