With treasures picked up during outdoor walks and hikes, your child can make a fashionable bracelet. As she finds interesting objects, she attaches them to tape (the sticky side is on the outside) that's been tied around her wrist. Afterward, plastic wrap will protect her new finery, which doubles as a summer keepsake.
