Here’s How We Made This DIY Witches Broom:

Step 1:

First step is to find a sturdy stick. This is really fun and a great excuse to go visit a local forest or woodlands. You may already have some sticks that have already been collected.

Find the perfect stick and only take what you need.

Remove any smaller branches and leaves from the stick.

Step 2:

Next you’ll need to collect the sweepy section of your broom. We visited a pine forest so used pine needles, but you could use smaller twigs or leaves. Let your children decide how they would like to create their own brooms.

Nature crafts can help to foster creativity and imaginative thinking in children. Playing with natural materials, such as leaves, twigs, and flowers, gives them an opportunity to experiment and to express their own unique ideas and designs.

Step 3:

Once you have your two parts its time to connect them. This bit can be a bit tricky. Use the jute twine to wrap the needles or twigs around the bottom of the branch and then secure tightly.

Then it’s time to take a zoom on your broom! You can use this broom alongside my broom breaths activity.
