Last week I wrote about taking my boys on a nature walk. We made our own baskets and collected lots of great stuff, and when we got home, we made a collage. It was a lot of fun, and the artwork turned out really cute.
Here is what we used:
- Stuff we collected on our nature walk (twigs, leaves, grass, etc...)
- A piece of canvas from the dollar store
- Paint (and a paint brush)
First, we painted the canvas, and we let it dry overnight.
Then, we used LOTS of glue to attach all our "little treasures".
Didn't it turn out great? Now we have a great piece of artwork AND a wonderful reminder of our afternoon wandering through the woods.
