OMO Activities: Creating Your Own Scrap Book on Nature

This is a fun and educational activity for children of all ages, and can be played as an adventurous holiday project. Get your kids excited about nature because dirt is good – and every outing can be an opportunity for learning and discovery! Make sure to spend time at various outdoor locations, from a walk after a big Sunday lunch to a trip to the park. The more time that your little ones spend getting to know and love Mother Nature, the better!What to get:
  • Coloured paper in an array of different shades
  • A ring-bound scrapbook of thick paper
  • Crayons
  • Glue (Pritt)
  • Pens and markers
  • Digital camera or disposable camera
  • A pair of scissors
  • Tape
What to do:
  1. Using a bug catcher, your kids can record the different types of insects discovered in their scrapbooks.
  2. Use a thick book and press different plants with tissue on each side to make sure that it doesn’t leave a mark on the pages.
  3. Take the camera along every time you visit a natural environment. You might get lucky and snap a few photos of the gorgeous local wildlife. Paste the photos in the scrapbook with a bit of glue and get the children to decorate around them using crayons and markers.
  4. Grab some old magazines and get your kids to cut out pictures to make collages of animals, birds, trees, planets, mountains, oceans and flowers to brighten up the book.
  5. Most of all, encourage your little ones to get creative!
