Nature Watch Craft Kit Review & Giveaway


I am so excited about the Lesson Plans Page final giveaway! Nature Watch is an AMAZING company that really values the combination of  nature,education and crafts! Those three words couldn’t ring more sweetly in my ear. Which is why I am so excited to offer up to you a wonderful craft kit called ‘Here Comes the Sun-Catcher’ Activity Kit. These kits are perfect for a girl or boyscout troop, a 4-H club, a birthday party,  in the classroom, as well as in a camp setting. The amazing thing about these kits are what is included in them. There are enough materials in each kit for 25 children to do the craft. (Nature Watch also has kits for up to 100 children’s crafts).

When I received the kit, I was so impressed by the quality of the materials. Everything we needed for the craft was in the box, including beautiful pressed flowers! My children are a little younger, but I felt that they could still complete this craft with a little help. In fact, they were able to do the entire craft except for the silver tape that surrounds the outside edge of the sun catcher. Overall, my children loved this craft! I was able to talk simply about the sun, while also connecting with them through time spent on the craft.

Here is how my oldest daughters turned out:  (My youngest already gave hers to her grandma!)

If you go to the Nature Watch website, and pull up a craft kit you are interested in , there is a box on the right hand side that also includes National Standards Alignment info, for use in a classroom to see how this kit will fit into your curriculum.  As a former science teacher, I am so impressed by these kits and the professionalism and thoroughness of each craft and their subject matter.

    This would be a great gift for a sick child at the MCG Children’s Hospital in Augusta, GA. Not only would it bring pleasure to them crafting it, but it would give them a ray of sunshine afterwards.

  2. Shelly E says

    I nanny and this would be a great craft to do with the kids, they could even make them for Mothers day and give them to their Mom!

  3. Christina says

    I would volunteer and use this kit at my niece’s girl scout meeting. They would love to do this craft!

  4. Cyd says

    ‘liked’ it on FB, and could totally use this at the Girl Scout Summer Day Camp I am the Director of!

    I manage the children’s garden at a botanical garden – I’d like to demo the activity before purchasing 100! It looks like a great activity that would fit right in with our theme for May – Flowers!

  6. Jacque Bruce says

    As a retired homeschooler, I mentor other younger moms who are teaching at home now. I would gift it to one of those families to use and enjoy!

  7. Jacque Bruce says

    Wow! I just went to their site, and they have lots of great stuff! I’d be interested in either the “make your compass” or “make your monocular” kits…they look super!

    I want to decorate with flowers and butterflies this spring, and this kit would be perfect.
