Sunrise Learning Lab has a great summer activity involving children, paint, and organic materials. The boys in the photo are using palm branches, but rocks, leaves, flowers, pine cones, and sticks could be used for the outdoor organic art activity.
Sunrise Learning Lab has helpful suggestions for successfully completing the art activity and also gives some Montessori – and even Reggio Emilia – tie-ins. It’s a good idea to add an outdoor art project to a study of botany. The activity and its tie-ins could be adapted for preschool- or elementary-aged children.
Have you done any art activities outdoors this summer?
