Garden Quilt

Garden Quilt craft

Little ones can remember their adventures in the garden by making a garden quilt with Crayola? Color Wonder? and no mess!

  • 1.

    Take a nature walk with a grownup. Go to a garden, a park, or your backyard. What colors do you see? What shapes? Smells? Textures?

  • 2.

    When you return from your walk, read books such as Quilting Now & Then to get an idea of how quilts are made. Or look at real quilts. Sometimes quilts tell stories, other quilts have patterns. Can you find some of each kind of quilt?

  • 3.

    Fold Crayola Color Wonder Paper back and forth into as many quilt pieces as you would like. Tear it into small, medium, and large pieces.

  • 4.

    Using Crayola Color Wonder Markers, draw a picture on each piece. Remember what you saw in the garden, and show those colors and shapes.

  • 5.

    Use Crayola Glue Sticks to attach each small picture to another piece of Color Wonder Paper or construction paper. Leave space between pictures. If you use Color Wonder Paper, draw a pattern, such as short lines for stitches, around the small pictures to add to the quilted look.
