Nature Pals

This is the craft that I enjoyed the most. I really liked being creative making accessories for the little people and seeing them come to life. My 3 year old loves playing with them.


  • Sticks and Twigs
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Flat stones
  • Markers
  • Small objects from nature-bark, pinecones, pine needles, pieces of bark, acorns and leaves


  • Break the sticks and bark into smaller pieces and hot-glue them together to form a body with arms and legs.
  • Draw a face on the stone with markers, then glue it to the torso.
  • Glue on other features, such as pinecone feet, an acorn hat, bark pants, pine needle hair or leaf clothes.
  • You can attach string to hang them by.
