tree bark toy homes

Today is our free craft day again. Free craft day meaning we do not pay for anything that goes into the craft we make. You can use stuff you have, recycle stuff and stuff found in nature, again as long as you do not spend anything on it. So this time we went with tree bark homes/dens for toys. Some tree branches fell into our yard few days ago and that is how this idea started. We normally cut up the wood to use for the fireplace but then there is bark and leaves still left all over, so we collected a few piece and my kids went to work making little dens and homes for toy erasers. They also tried making bridges and slides. It was fun, free and best thing was it got my kids outside and exploring.

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
