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:
