Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Some of my favorite memories as a child are of craft time while camping. Using the things we found during scavenger hunts, or while hiking made the craft that much more special too. Leaf prints always made beautiful cards, and painted rocks were paper weights in everyones home at one time or another. Painted twigs went into large vases in the corner of the dining room, and pine cones were used for everything from decorations to bird feeders. Thank you for sharing all of these great ideas!
