Saturday, December 19, 2015, turned cool and windy but our volunteers and guests bundled up to attend our third monthly Family Day At The Nature Center.  December’s theme was “Naturally Crafty” and included craft projects which were made with natural materials.  The day proved we have some “crafty” volunteers.  Click on any photo to enlarge for a closer look.

 

We had all the ingredients to make seashell Christmas ornaments.

Our food craft transformed a Nutter Butter peanut butter cookie, broken pretzel pieces, a red M&M and edible eyes into a reindeer!  Frosting held it all together.  Yep, we sugared up all children big and small!

These sweet gum balls will be turned into Christmas Ornaments but first glitter glue will have to be added to give them a little pizazz.

Olivia Mitchell is in the process of making her fingerprint greeting card.  Some folks start with the thumb fingerprint for “reindeer” mom and dad, then another finger for older “reindeer” siblings and the pinkie fingerprint for smaller “reindeer” children.  We had one creative child who made the family dog by placing a fingerprint horizontally.
