Nature Art

Spring is in full force and we are spending much, much more time outside!  This Nature Art project is a fun way to let your children explore space, create art, and enjoy a natural sensory experience outdoors! 

You could use it as an excuse to review colors, count objects, name plants, and talk about patterns.  Or you could just let your children create a natural masterpiece.  Either is wonderful!

Simple Supplies:
  • posterboard
  • school (Elmer's) glue
  • outdoor supplies

Easy How-To:

1- Cut the posterboard down to a manageable size.  You want thick paper like posterboard because your children will be gluing heavy things to it.

2- Let your children create their own artwork by gluing small rocks, grasses, flowers, cones, sticks, and anything else they find in any design they choose!

Happy Educating, Carla

I may share at any of these parties!

This is such a great idea. When my kiddo was little, I used to regularly take paper and glue to the park. He loved it!

I'd like if you shared this with us at Eco-Kids Tuesday Link-Up this week or next!
