Construction Paper Masterpiece: Grab some construction paper, glue, crayons or markers, and items from nature. Simply have your child come up with a creative picture using materials they picked up from nature, drawing whatever parts they want. They can glue items from nature in place. They may take petals from flowers and make their own flower. Or make a log home out of sticks. Encourage them to pull things apart and explore them more fully.
I love to save the plastic food trays as they are also great for projects like this. My daughters spread glue in the bottom of one, added sand and then glued shells from our beach trip. What a cute way to display their shells!
