Nature (Weekly Unplugged Project)

By , December 9, 2007 9:21 pm

This week’s Unplugged Project was anything related to “nature,” or for those who wanted a little more guidance: “Collect objects from outside and create a seasonal nature tray or nature table.”

I had thought we might do the collection and display idea, but then the snow came making it hard to spend time outside, or even find things to collect. The kids went outside on Saturday morning to play, and made this “sledding snowman.” That is an unplugged idea, and it involves nature…so I guess it counts!

When I went out this morning to take this picture I noticed that the snowman was wearing (unbeknownst to me) my favorite black velvet hat. I must say that I do think it looks better on me!

That hat has had some adventures. Once it flew off my head in the London Underground and landed on the rails. It spent the night down there and during the nightly maintenance, a worker kindly retrieved it for me. Despite a cleaning, it smelled like “The Tube” for months after that, bringing me a happy little whiff of London every time I wore it. Now it has spent the night outside making a snowman look chic.

What was your project this week for “nature?” Please put your link in Mr. Linky so that we can find you.


Next Monday’s project:

Yarn or string
(a little “string theory” Andree? I look forward to it!)

Have fun!

    It’s cold, ¿isn’t it? Oh, i’ve never made a snowman. And your hat has now another adventure to tell, lol.

    I’m back!! 3AM and I get out of bed to check and I’m back!

    Our snow isn’t making snowmen and of course this is the year I want to make one. When I am able, I think your hat would look great on mine too.

    And string? sigh
    (I SHOULD do string theory! HA)

    That is a great snow man. I miss making snowmen. I grew up in Maine and now living in south Florida that makes it kind of hard. I am sure that hat looks better on you, but it is really cute on the snowman to.

    OK, we are in, took me a while to load up my pictures.
    Love your snowman, we have no snow left here.

    Oh wow, I’m so envious. It’s only every couple of years we get enough snow to make a proper snowman. That’s a great way to experience nature.
