Outdoor Making:

Natural Materials: Think of any child turned loose to play in the woods, a park, a backyard, or on the beach. Chances are it won’t be long before they start gathering materials and creating things with them. Primordial materials like mud, sticks, leaves, rocks, sand, and water, abundant in quantity, offer potential for materials exploration, free play, or planning and constructing. With the right framing, a pile of sticks and leaves can become stacks of construction material for a collaborative shelter build. How might you leverage the power of natural materials in your space? How might you take making outside?
