The time is finally here. I get to release my Nature Arts and Crafts printable pack!
After months of making nature printables, using them with my kids and then tweaking them if they need it — all whilst working, blogging and parenting– it’s finally ready for you and your children to enjoy. It’s been a mammoth effort but it’s all been worth it. I do hope you are as excited as I am!
Whether you’re brand new to the concept of nature play or a seasoned nature crafter and supporter of forest schools, this Nature Art and Craft Printable pack will provide hours of fun, learning and creativity for you and your children.
As mothers and educators, many of us know it’s important to limit our children’s screen time. Yet, on average, children spend up to 4 hours a day in front of the TV, iPad or our phones. It is now more important than ever that we allow our children to grow and learn through hands-on play experiences with nature.
My Nature Art and Craft Printable pack includes more than 30 printables but all have the ability to provide even more activities just by using them with different natural materials!
Check out what’s inside!
Why nature printables?
Jam-packed full of wondrous activities, I created these printables with two main objectives:
- To encourage kids outside and collect some beautiful natural materials for art and crafts.
- To encourage children to engage in the tactile experience of crafting with the natural materials they collected.
There are even a couple of printable sheets for days when you just have no option but to stay inside.

If you’re a planner – there’s over a month’s worth of DAILY nature craft activities available in this printable pack and many are versatile and can be used multiple times in different ways.
If you’re not a planner – these are great to pull out when you have nothing planned at all. All you’ll need is access to the outdoors and a few common craft items like glue and scissors to bring them to life. Some don’t even need that!
What does each nature activity include:
I’ve tried to make it really easy for you. Each activity comes with its own page that features a list of materials and step-by-step instructions for setting up each activity.
If you’re an educator, they’re perfect to display on your center parent board to show what activity the children will be participating in that day. There are also some helpful tips on how to extend their learning and how to best display your finished artworks.
You don’t need to spend hours and hours searching for nature art and craft activities on Pinterest. I’ve put together the nature art and craft resources for you and it’s going to save you so much time and bring your children so much wondrous play.
How will it help my child?
I remember spending most of my time outside collecting natural ‘treasures,’ making mud pies or drawing in the dirt. My kids do that now too but they also love when I provide them with fun activities that they had never thought of doing themselves.
As an environmental educator trained in early years education, I understand the importance and value of creative play with nature. I ensure my children are given plenty of opportunities to play and explore with items from their natural world.
Inside, you’ll find printables to help support play, weaving, patterns, sensory development, fine motor skills, and most importantly, creative thinking! Nature appreciation is an underlying theme, because that’s the reason I made the pack in the first place!

Sorry, not at this stage.
Why should I trust you?
I am whole heartedly passionate about getting children connecting with nature.
I hold a bachelor of applied science, specialising in wildlife biology, a Graduate Diploma of Early Years education and have been teaching children from kindergarten to teens as an environmental educator (wildlife and environmental education) for over 12 years.
All nature activities have been road tested by myself, my three children, some of my wonderful community members (you know who you are – thank you!) and some of my environmental education officer friends. I am really proud of what I’ve created and I hope you will be too.
Still not convinced? Here’s a free excerpt to show the quality of my printable pack.
Is this eBook suitable for my ___ aged child?
The activities in this printable are suited to children of many different age groups. I don’t outline specific ages on each activity because every child develops differently and I believe you know your child best.
In my opinion, though, it is most suitable for children between the age bracket of 3 to 10 years. Some of the nature printables start with the basics and move to a printable that’s slightly more complex. For example, in the pack we have weaving activities, one that starts with the basics of weaving grass and another that builds on more complex weaving with a printable basket weave template.
Once I’ve printed the Pack – How do I store it?
It’s best if you download and save it to your computer. I’ve allowed you 3 months to download the printable pack and you can download it up to three times. Keep your email from me and that’s how you’ll be able to access it again, just in case it has been lost.
Can I share the download with my friends
I would appreciate if you directed your friends to my website so that they can buy Nature Arts and Crafts themselves. I have worked very hard on these nature printables and kept it at a very reasonable price so that everyone has the ability to have their own copy. Please support Mother Natured and a family who are trying to make a positive difference in the world – to connect kids with nature.
