Get into nature...then back inside for hot chocolate
#makemehappy week 1: Nature Painting
Time: 30 mins
Fun, easy (my 2 yr old loved it), not too messy, no cost (if you already have paints)
Saw this idea on Pinteret and have been meaning to do it for ages as its so simple...basically pop into the garden/local park/woods with a bucket and forage for leaves, pine cones, conkers, moss, bark and anything else your little explorers can get their hands on. Then get back in the warm (preferably with a cup hot chocolate :)), get the paints out but not the brushes and use the naturey bits instead. I'm sure an older budding artist could be very creative and make quite an impressive pattern/picture but I was pretty pleased with our end result too!
