Nature art project for toddlers and young children. Invitation to play and paint with nature treasures.

Last week was unusually warm for April in Germany (meaning we could go outside without wearing a coat).

For the first time in months, we were able to spend most of the day outdoors.

One of our favorite things to do when the weather is nice is to go for a long walk in a beautiful nature path that is very close by.

My two year old has recently become obsessed with collecting treasures during our walks: flowers, sticks, leaves, rocks (did you saw our easter tree made of tree sticks?!).

Fun Nature Process Art For Young Children

So this week we took a small basket with us to bring our treasures home and, use them for an amazing nature art project I had in mind.

Supplies

I decided to take this art project to our garden to make it even more fun. To do so, I took Tutu’s table to the garden and, just left all the supplies on top of the table without giving her any instructions.

I was quite surprised when she took some paint brushes and, started painting the flowers and some leaves.

Then, she used the painted flowers and leaves to paint on the canvas! And of course, she went on to cover her hands in paint. She was busy with this activity for half an hour.

 

An Easy Way To Extend This Activity

Finally, I decided to offer Tutu some glue and as expected she poured all of it over the canvas and spread it everywhere (including her little hands).

Then she started gluing some flowers and leaves on the canvas.

This activity was, without a doubt, a wonderful, whole experience for my little girl.

The final piece is absolutely unique, it truly amazes me every time I look at it!

We all fell in love with it and we hung it in our living room which made her glow with pride.

The piece has not deteriorated so far but I’m thinking to use a Surface Treatment Spray to preserve this masterpiece for years to come.
