Painting With Nature

Spring is an excellent time of the year to discuss things in nature, and to go on walks. If you ever go on a walk with your child you can collect a few things along the way that you think they'd like to paint with. Painting with things other than their fingers or a brush is really fun and engaging for them. We gathered some different things and I'm not sure what to call them! Interesting parts of the grass, things from trees, things found on the ground that are part of nature..anything works!

My daughter wanted to use orange and yellow paint. I had it on a paper plate, and gave her a sheet of finger paint paper and all our nature objects with it and allowed her to get creative! It turned out beautifully.
