5. Weave


Weave: practice mindfulness by gathering leaves, flowers and grass with a friend to weave nature bracelets and necklaces.


Weaving is an accessible and meditative pastime and can take many forms, with differing techniques used to create functional and decorative items such as basketry, textiles and home décor, like wall hangings. Natural materials used in weaving can include wool, grasses, cotton and an abundance of other plant fibres, making this a tactile and creative way for children to connect with nature and express themselves through art.
