Nature Projects



Here are a bunch of projects that revolve around the theme of nature. Some of them are outdoor project, others are indoor projects and some are even projects where you bring the outdoors inside!

And, if you are interested in real butterflies I also have a few different projects about them! In just about all of these projects I give you complete instructions with pictures and often videos. So, if you are interested in projects about the natural world there should be something here that you will like.

The focus of all these projects is that you actually interact or handle nature whether it be trees, plants, animals or insects.
