Nature Paintings

Oh Monday- you are back again. I will admit, it was lovely being able to bake yesterday so that makes it slightly better but I don’t understand why you must come so quickly? The only thing that makes today ok is that I get to share our Nature Paintings with you!

Last weeks project was all about using things from nature to paint with instead of using our hands or paintbrushes. We went for a walk a few days before (thankfully we did because the weather has been an absolute asshole!) with our wee basket to collect fallen twigs, leaves, bark and other bits and bobs we could find on our adventures. I am pretty sure we ended up coming back with half a fallen tree, but it was fun none the less!

Usually our art projects are done outside so we can enjoy the fresh air but this week everything was soaked right through, including the deck so this we had to settle for some inside time. Miss I did not seem to mind one little bit!

She had an absolute ball using the sticks as paintbrushes, trying to print the patterns from the leaves and bark onto the paper as well as rolling seeds around the place. We even made some nature music by crunching the leaves and sticks to hear the different sounds they make when broken. I’d call that a double project win?

What you’ll need
– paper
– paint
– nature things- twigs, leaves, bark etc
– newspaper to cover the floor if you’re painting inside

What to do
– Grab your paint, paper and nature things, cover them (and your hands) in paint and get painting and printing. Thats really all there is to it!

Miss I takes after me and chose to go with a black and white theme for hers, but splash out and add some colour!

HAVE FUN!

  1. You are such a great mum, always coming up with fantastic ideas! I am afraid to say that I was one of those mums who was more worried about the mess (although I tried really hard not to 🙁 ).

    1. I worried about the mess to begin with but I just had to let it go otherwise we wouldn’t have fun. Its hard when you’re OCD haha

  2. She is just the cutest little pickle Ashleigh!!!! And what a super duper mummy you are letting her loose with the paints and things – and you can bake! You’re like Mary Poppins!
