We love going on our daily nature walks and often collect treasure on the way. Our local forest is Cannock chase and is full of treasure to find.
Today we collected pine cones, daisies, pebbles and long grass! We also collected lots of sticks but we left those behind.
When we got home I had the idea of using some of our treasure to make pictures with. Nature painting!
First we started with the pinecones. They made pretty cool printing pictures and the littlies loved dipping them in the paints and mixing colours with them. I think the end result was pretty funky!
We then made grass paintings using the grass as brushes. The results were really awesome – we are going to frame them because they’re so bright and funky! What do you think?
Why not get out and about collecting nature treasure, then have a go at nature painting fun at home!
