Summer Play Inspiration - Play with Twigs and Branches

This week's topic for Share & Play on our Facebook page was summer fun playing with twigs and branches - something you can find everywhere in the nature, making this medium available and cheap for crafts and arts. Many wonderful ideas were shared and today, we'll share these ideas with all of you here so you can take a look and recreate some of these ideas at home with your own toddlers:

Stick men by Red Ted Art

Tin can forest by Hands on: as we grow

Twig vases by Paint Cut Paste

Driftwood mobiles by Paint Cut Paste (3 versions!)

Organic art by Living Montessori Now

Bird Nests by Seeds Idea Network

Fairy Loom by Paint Cut Paste

Additional ideas by Rachele from Messy Kids who says: " Branches always become swords in our household. I personally prefer painting with them :) Also roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over a campfire."
