It may not be Spring for us in Australia but so many flowers bloom at different times of the year that this nature head craft printable can be used all year round. Many of you are just coming into Spring after a long, cold winter so I thought it would be nice to provide you with an activity to celebrate the season.
These boy and girl head printables were made with inspiration from Dada who decorated heads with magazine cut outs of nature (among other things). I loved Dada’s print outs but I wanted mine to be more child-like so designed my own printable for kids.
Your mission – or your child’s mission – is to decorate the head with nature. Think flowers, leaves, grass. The head outcomes are endless!
What you’ll need to create the nature head:
- Glue sticks
- Download and print the nature head printouts below
- Nature. We used ferns, flowers, grass and leaves but you can add dirt, sand, small sticks and gumnuts too!

Collecting nature for a collage
Collecting nature is always an outdoor activity to enjoy with the kids. While collecting your natural items comment on their colors, patterns or shape. It doesn’t take long for children to notice these little things. What I love is when they start to describe something they’ve found. It’s heart warming to watch them appreciate nature just as we do.
Set the materials out on the table and let the kids, go for it.
To say my children – and the neighbors children- loved this activity is an understatement! What I enjoyed watching most was how different and creative all the heads turned out with just the use of nature to collage with. I assumed they would make hair with the nature they were given. I didn’t consider they’d create earrings, eye brows, beards and nose piercings!
