This take on a classic camp craft inspires your family members to create versions of themselves with natural treasures from your own backyard.

What you'll need

  • Sticks and twigs
  • Hand pruners (a parent's tool)
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Flat stone
  • Colored pencils
  • Small objects from nature, such as pinecones, pine needles, pieces of bark, acorns, and leaves
  • 8-inch piece of twine (optional)

How to make it

  1. Trim the sticks with the pruners and hot-glue them together to form a body with arms, a torso, and legs.

  2. Draw a face on the stone with colored pencils, then glue it to the torso.

  3. Glue on the other features, such as pinecone feet, an acorn cap, bark pants, or a pine needle skirt.

  4. Once the glue has set, you can hang your project by tying the twine into a loop, then gluing it to the back.
