The kids always collect nature treasures when we step outside the house so we decided to use their finds and some natural craft supplies to paint some nature collages. Little Tiger came up with this art activity after I presented her with the supplies. She loved exploring textures, colors, and brushstrokes during this Painting Activity.

Originally I had a different art idea in mind, but it would have been silly for me to stop my daughters creative impulses…so I re-took our pictures and renamed this activity because we think it’s perfect!

This post is included in a PAINT-A-THON, that 35+ bloggers have teamed up to create new art ideas for kids like our Milk Cap Squish Painting! Be sure to check all the other ideas out here:  2015 PAINT-A-THON

Pin me please! 🙂

Supplies:

Craft paint
Craft paper
Paint brush (optional)
Nature treasures (leaves, sand, dirt, flowers…)
Glue

Directions:
1.  Mix some glue into the paint, spread paint on the paper using paint brush or fingers, and then sprinkle, drag, or smash nature treasure into the paint. You can also dip the nature treasures in the paint and throw, swirl, or drop them on the paper.

 

Basically anything goes and that is the best part! If the nature treasure is a bit large you can add a little glue to secure it better. Gently shake off excess decorations and set artwork out to dry.
