Here's a fun garden craft activity that your kids are going to love.

You will need

  • Card (A5 pieces work well)
  • Double sided sticky tape (Carpet tape from a DIY shop is strongest but use with care as it's very strong!)
  • Pens

What to do

  1. Stick a piece of tape along the length of the card.
  2. Go out into the garden and start hunting for interesting items to add to your collage.
  3. Peel a bit of the tape back and stick on your first find.
  4. Continue around the garden, peeling back the tape and adding finds.
  5. When your tape is all used up, use pens to title and date your piece of art.
  6. How many of your finds can you name? Add labels if you can.
