I want to share some of my new orbs with all of you. These are really fun to make. All you need to styrofoam white foam balls, a glue stick gum, glue sticks and the creative materials of your choice. Here are more that we have made. The tac was an idea I found searching blogs and it was a lot harder to do. But the pompoms give you an instant result and they are so bright for everyones eyes. Jeans and older shirts at the seams are fun to glue. The red one is cut up egg cartons recycled and was a challenge but fun. A lot of layers on that one, then spray painted. The green milk carton was fun to do as well. The ideas are endless. Leave us a comment to keep us posting our CREATIVE SIDE. All pictures are copyrighted by Our Creative Side.

After visiting some of my favorite blogs yesterday, I seen one on making a textured art print. And this is my interpetation since I couldn't run to the store to get texture medium or anything. This was the ending product, but I show a tutorial of what steps that I went through.
The recipe is at the bottom of this page. I chose to add these beans to my mixture.
Makes such adorable imprints.
And walah. Here is my finished product

I made these NATURE JARS for our sensory station area. I used mayonaise jars. Found acorns and extra nick nacks to add to each jar. Bug Balls I found at Walmart. Tree limbs are from outside. The children love to pick these up, examine each one and notice new things in them. I hot glued the lids on. The bug balls are a big hit.
This is a NATURE CENTER STATION that we made this week. I am bringing the outside in with tree twigs, bridges, rocks, fish and more. I super glued everything in this nature center station. There is no wrong or right materials to add to a nature center so if your looking to make one, feel free to use some of my ideas or create your own. I made the bridges out of craft sticks and old antique wood. It can be as simple or complicated as you want to spend your time doing. All pictures are copyrighted by myself but feel free to link to my blog. Leave us a comment to keep adding our CREATIVE SIDE.
Creative Texture Sensory Sticks~ I made these by using textured feely balls cut in half, pom poms, small buttons, large buttons, string, yarn, beans, 3-d cardboard characters for the children to touch and feel. I hot glued each item on and added them to our science and nature area. All pictures are copyrighted by myself but a link to my blog is encouraged. Leave us a comment to keep us sharing our CREATIVE SIDE. For storage, use a butter dish, box, bag for added investigation and curiousity.
