Painting With Nature | Nature Play
Brisbane Kids love to play in the great outdoors, and creating wonderful masterpieces with their nature finds is a fun and exciting new way to experiment with nature and all her wonderful textures.
The world around us is filled with wonderful textures that look amazing translated onto a canvas. These Nature Play activities are wonderful for fine motor skills, whilst also allowing your child’s inner artist to flourish with different painting tools.
How to paint with natural tools:
Stamping with Nature
Seed pods, rocks and flowers make excellent stamps. The rough and uneven texture makes for interesting random patterns.
Use leaves, grasses, sticks and bushy flowers as paint brushes. Create a brush by tying a collection of leaves or grass to the end of a stick using string or elastic bands.
Writing Instruments Found Outdoors
The quill end of feathers or sticks can be manipulated to draw more accurately or practice writing skills.
Roll smooth seed pods, such as chestnuts across a page creating a trail. Rough seeds or large flowers from a Banksia can be rolled for added texture.
The possibilities of natural artistic beauty are endless. Enjoy this super fun and tactile nature painting play!
