We live in the bush of Northern Canada and the kids are starting a summer business selling birch bark and moss and other natural products from the bush. They are not out to make a million dollars, just some spending money. Does anyone have any suggestions of what they may be looking for in the way of the favors and decor from natural products??
I see that they can make the tubes and supplies for some little favors. Just wondering what people may be looking for

I’m on the lookout for birch products! High on my list: Birch vases, birch “sticks” to use for a topiary (so at least 1″ thick, and straightish). Good luck!

when i was in grade 2 or 3 (i live in canada too-lots of birch here wow) anyway i made a surprisingly nice candle holder out of split log, an adult drilled the holes for the candles of course, wish i still had it, but yeah drill holes and insert candles add flowers and voila, you got natual beauty, ive also included the above picture for using them as vases, tho you may want to coat the inside with something non porous.. also you can lay them flat and cut slits in them and use them as escort card holders!

Thank you so much for the information. the picture is lovely. I think the kids will have a great summer doing this activity and maybe make a little back to school clothes money 🙂 It is also nice to see that they look lovely with the flowers in them even if they don’t look quite perfect..(a few rips) and they do look like they may be a little fragile. I have seen some pieces in our gathering trips that are very fragile

Birch vases definitly Im using them for my centrepieces. The easiest way instead of drilling is to take mason jars and take the dried birch that has fallen off the trees and wrap it around and hot glue gun it to the mason jar. But I would definitly be interested in getting these from your kids
