A shrink plastic suncatcher is another project in this kit. An 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of clear shrink plastic is included in this kit. The instructions and template for the suncatcher are included.
The featured artist in this kit is Jan Van Kessel. An art print focusing on insects is part of this kit. There is a notebooking page focusing on Van Kessel and insects as well.
There is a watercolor project based on the Van Kessel print. A 4"x6" watercolor paper postcard is used as a canvas for an insect art project. A 5" x 7" professional black mat is included as a finishing touch for this art project.
The art element for this kit is circles and dots. Your child will learn about the circle and dot families and will be encouraged to look for these shapes in artwork they view as well as to use these elements in their own sketching. A nature study color wheel finishes up the nature study part of this kit. Your child will fill in their own color wheel and then take it outside and look for things to match each slice of the color wheel. This is a fun project to get you outside and focused on fall color.

I am really excited to finally have my newest kit available to share with you all. Thank you for your patience. Because it has taken me so long to put together, I am again combining two seasons for this kit. This is my Winter/Spring 2010 kit.
There are a lot of fun projects in this kit that I am sure you and your children will enjoy. 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, markers, watercolors, glue, etc.)
The themes of this kit are: owls, salt, silhouettes and nightscapes.
The sewing project for this kit is an adorable felt owl stuffie. Your child will learn 3 basic embroidery stitches and complete this easy sewing project. As a new feature, included with the purchase of the kit will be an invitation to my private Hearts and Trees Resources blog. On this blog you will find step by step videos, instructions and printable PDFs for all three of the stitches used in this project.
Another handicraft project included in this kit, is a set of plastic canvas coasters. Using two colors of yarn and learning two different stitches, your child will complete their very own set of coasters. This would be a nice introduction to plastic canvas. The yarn, plastic canvas, plastic needle and instructions are all included in this kit.
- Van Gogh art print Starry Night
- Van Gogh artist notebooking page
- Plastic canvas coasters- set of two- yarn, plastic needle, plastic canvas, instructions
- Owls nature study page- owl information, research project and sketching assignment

- Owl Stuffie Embroidery project- felt, needle, pins, embroidery thread, instructions
- Salt lapbook- lapbook element pages, 2 plastic baggies, strip of watercolor
These kits were gathered with children ages 6-12 in mind. Parents may need to help their students, especially younger children, with some aspects of this kit.

This is sure to be a lot of fun. The PDF includes all the lapbooking elements and instructions. You will of course need to provide the salt and other common household items to complete these experiments.

***Please note, this is not automated, so I will have to email the lapbooking pages to you once I receive your PayPal payment. I currently DO NOT have internet at my house. So you can expect the PDF to be emailed to you within 72 hours, but usually sooner. (I currently do not have Internet access at my house.)
