Nature is rich with beautiful, free art supplies. From twigs, to rocks, to acorn shells, it is fun for kids to collect and create. My children and I gathered supplies in an old coffee canister during our last nature walk with the intention of creating whimsical Bark Owls.

This time of year, acorns are abundant. We gathered many, then added bark, twigs, tree nuts, and pebbles to our container. An old packet of pumpkin seeds from the garage proved to be the last supply we needed to complete our craft.
Bark Owl Craft
Materials and Directions:
NOTE: We collected all materials, including the bark, from the ground.
Gently chip the bark into the shape of an owl. Using the hot glue, attach 2 acorn caps and 1 pumpkin seed to the owl. Glue the owl to a dry, leafy branch and display!
