The Pokémon Go craze has officially taken over our household, my husband and I included.
No, I don’t feel embarrassed.
Yes, I will defend myself, soon enough, but for now I want to show you the amazing Pokemon nature crafts we’ve been creating together.
If you and your children are openly (or secretly) Pokemon mad. I’m sure you’ll enjoy unplugging and getting a little hands-on with nature inspired Pokemon crafts too. You gotta make ’em all!
Firstly, we made Pokeballs by slicing branches and then painting them. Check out this post if you’re not sure how to slice a branch.
Pokemon nature collage
We printed colouring pictures of our favourite Pokemon and used bits of nature to turn them into masterpieces. We mainly used leaves for this craft but we’ve used flowers, grass and other bit and pieces from nature in a similar colour-with-nature craft.
Oddish was super fun to make. Glue little sticks to the base of a gumnut. For those who don’t have gumnuts near you, perhaps you could hollow out some acorns?
Paint Oddish blue. Let it dry and then paint on a face. Fill the gumnut with dirt and stick in a plant. Easy!
Yep, sorry, we used gumnuts again. They just lend themselves to so many Pokemon! Again, an acorn may work quite well for a Digglet. Just use sandpaper to flatten one side so it sits flush on the table.
Clay Pokemon Craft
Next, we made Pokemon creatures out of clay. Pokemon crafts are so much fun!
The Pokemon Go app really helps if you’re trying to create a 3D Pokemon creature. Go to the app and look at the Pokemon you’ve caught. When you touch them, they move. If you move your finger to the left or right, while touching the Pokemon, it twirls it around so you can see if from different angles. Use the app as a guide while you’re building your creature from clay.
My eldest made Jigglypuff and I wanted to make a mini Bulbasaur pot plant holder (affiliate) I’d seen for sale on Etsy.
Bellsprout Pokemon craft
A gumnut was the perfect head for a Bellsprout. I just couldn’t help myself. Here’s the pieces you will need to make it. I just painted the head and then used a glue gun to stick all the parts together.
We’ve had lots of hands-on fun working with and without with the app to create our Pokemon creatures. I’m trying to encourage more Pokemon Go real-world activities and I have a few more to follow in another post. I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out our Pokemon crafts as much as we’ve had fun making them.
