Get your fledgling creatives to gather grasses, leaves, stems, and flowers in your yard, at the park, or at day camp. Then, provide the washable paint (check out our recipe for Homemade Finger Paints made from pantry ingredients that are non-toxic, washable, and readily available) to create all-natural artwork.
Grass, leaves, stems, and flowers
Forage for grasses, leaves, stems, and flowers.
Pinch them into clothespins to make uniquely textured paintbrushes.
Put out some washable tempera, and let them play en plein air.
