Natural material artwork

Go for a walk and collect a range of natural materials including sticks, twigs, stones, flowers, grass and anything else you can find (make sure you are being careful and ask a grown up for advice if you are not sure). Use the materials and arrange them to create different patterns, images and landscapes.
