Specimen Bracelet

Kids will be encouraged to walk around outside searching for interesting specimens that they can add to their bracelets to display and observe over time.

WHAT YOU NEED:

duct tape; clear packing tape

HERE ARE THE STEPS:

  1. Place tape around your wrist like a bracelet, sticky side out.
  2. Hike around outdoors and find specimens, and stick them to your bracelet. (Remember to only pick up loose parts, and do not pick anything that is living like insects, or the flowers off a plant.)
  3. Once you have filled your specimen bracelet, cover the bracelet with packing tape to seal in the specimens.
  4. You can observe the specimens with magnifying glasses and use your creation as a bracelet (or cut the loop to make it into a bookmark)
