Kids will get in touch with Mother Earth--and see how to save her, too--with 150 illustrated, truly terrific nature-friendly projects. There are things to do for every season of the year, crafts that use recycled materials, and activities that encourage youngsters to investigate the natural world. Fantastic color photos capture real children happily working on the projects, and every project mixes fun and learning. A cute cat wind vane will show which way the wind blows, and a pretty barometer in a painted jar captures changes in air pressure; fabulous facts on weather provide additional interesting information. Take advantage of the great things that grow by making candies with fresh mint leaves or vinegars with just-picked herbs. Plus: a pocket sundial, a sweet smelling grass mat, a "desert in a jar," and more. Library of Congress Summary. More than 150 nature crafts, including: wind vanes, beach baskets, bird feeders, scented soap, barometers, egg shell mosaics, etc.
