We collected acorns and other gifts of nature. Nuts linden, maple noses, and many others. With our collection of fresh, still green acorns, after returning home, there were tiny forest people…
Willow balls, wicker balls
This week started autumn, although the temperature during the day is not necessarily so indicate. Walking with my daughter resulted in an unexpected way some green branches of willow trees that give so many possibilities of arrangement. We have not worked with this material, but if it is, why not?

Halloween Black and white flies
This year we decided to re-use Halloween as a theme for arts and crafts for kids. The more that recently theme of bugs and worms became very popular.
