This month I went directly to Lorie McGraw's Slide Show for these two slides. She has many more at http://home.att.net/~llmcgraw/etowah/slides.htm

Nature Slides #1

Hot glue a pipecleaner ring to the backside of a 2" diameter slice of branch. Or drill 2 holes in the slice and thread the pipe cleaner through to make the loop. •Glue pieces of twigs, nuts, pebbles to the front side. •Press flowers or leaves and glue to the wood •sand smooth and draw animal tracks on the slide •Use a rubber stamp on the cut and sanded side, then use colored pencils to add detail. •Make a pattern (like a mosaic) of different seeds, corn, beans, dandelion fluff, etc.. Draw the pattern on, then apply glue to one section at a time. Sprinkle with one kind of seeds. After each section is covered, then use the next kind of seed. How about the fleur de leis as a design?

Nature Slides #2

This one is made out of 1/2 inch plastic pipe. Get a plastic pipe cutter and cut off neckerchief lengths of plastic pipe. Have the boys glue nature objects. stones, twigs, nuts and seeds to the plastic pipe. Or they could cut out pictures from magazines and glue them on like decoupage.
