As of July 31, 2oo8 I still have quite a few kits left, but

Introducing the Hearts and Trees Summer Kit

I am now accepting orders for the Hearts and Trees Summer Kit!

Each kit includes the instructions and materials to complete easy and fun handicraft, art and nature study projects with a minimum of effort. (Please note that you will need to provide common art supplies such as paper, stapler, watercolors, markers, colored pencils, etc.)

This kit includes a wonderful garden nature study lapbook. Included in the lapbook is a 12 page cardstock nature journal bound with comb binding, 3 sunflower seeds, a sunflower observations section to record what you see as your seeds grow, a place to put a pressed flower, a nature poem, a 3x5inch Monet art print and a section about the parts of a flower and plant.

A worksheet to accompany the Monet print as well as an art element worksheet focusing on overlapping and depth is also included.

The materials are provided to make an amazing watercolor collage for the front of your lapbook.
This kit includes a sewing project: a drawstring treasure pouch. The fabric, ribbon needle, thread, pins, and instructions are included. (Please note the fabric for the drawstring pouch will not be the butterfly fabric shown above, but will be either a blue bee or a blue bandanna print.)

All of the materials and instructions are provided to make a cardboard flower press and then a bookmark using your pressed flowers.

A laminated 3x5inch nature study card focusing on things found in the garden is also included in the Hearts and Trees summer kit.

Being a fairly new blogger, I just realized how much time and effort that you put forth in your posts. I will admit that at times I feel overwhelmed with creating/teaching/learning art and poetry but I cannot thank you enough for your love of learning and to be able to share that with me is so awesome. THank you so much for your time and energy and thank you for showing me that which I may in turn share with my children.
Shine On!!!

We have just started on the summer kit and are really enjoying it. I have three boys and they loved the flower press and bookmarks! Thanks for the inspiration!
