I love working with different elements when creating art. We recently ran a kids craft activity at our local shopping centre and took along a ton of natural products for the kids to create something special with.
Twigs, bark, sand, flowers, shells, seeds and whatever else I could find in my backyard. Using PVA glue and some white bond paper, the kids absolutely loved it!
A couple of tips:-
- Place sand in old salt shakers (really lessons any major mess)
- Use paint brushes to apply the PVA glue
- Set up your work area with everything in baskets or piles
- Let the kids help with collecting your nature art supplies (this just adds to all the fun)
