Nature Walk Bracelet
Suggested age for this project: 1-12 years old
- BAM! Tape™ Masking Tape
- An outdoor location to gather nature samples
Step 1: Measure
Step 2: Put it on Your Wrist
Step 3: Go on a Hike!
Find small things from nature that you can collect and stick to your bracelet.
Be creative and take the time to look more closely at the ground as well as the vegetation. I bet that you can stand in one spot and practically ﬁll a bracelet with 20 different things!
Remember to respect Nature:
- Please do not collect living bugs or animals. Dead bugs are ﬁne!
- Be sure to know how to recognize poisonous plants that may grow in the area. Some are poisonous to eat, (Do not eat anything that you ﬁnd on your nature walk), and some, like poison ivy and poison oak, are poisonous to even touch. Do not touch them!
- If you are in a place that doesn’t allow you to pick flowers, don’t pick the flowers.
- Remember that there is nature in your own back yard, and it is usually safe to pick a flower or two there!
Step 4: The Big Reveal
- Can you identify the flowers, seeds, and types of rock that you found?
- Compare your bracelet with someone else. Did you ﬁnd different types of things?
- Does your bracelet say anything about you or the area that you visited? Are you a flower collector? Are you into rocks?
- When you are done wearing your bracelet, have an adult carefully cut your bracelet so that you can take it off.
- You can save your bracelet by taping it to a sheet of paper or cardboard. Label it and collect bracelets from different walks and locations
