Good morning! It’s a beautiful day and the birds are chirping! Today we are exploring nature and all its beautiful elements. Yesterday we went on a family nature walk and collected lots of different nature goodies ― leaves, twigs, pine needles, green berries, and sweetgums or as C says, “spiky pine cones.” It was a beautiful invitation to explore! C, Daddy, and I discovered different textures, smells, and sounds.
Being in nature is so calming, yet energizes the senses too! C immediately noticed all the sweetgum balls and began picking them apart. After a long beautiful walk we ventured home to explore all our fun finds. After setting up an invitation to paint, C identified his three favorite colors, poured, and began painting!
I just love all different textures!
I painted an outline of the large leaf with a roller. C really enjoyed the pine needle splashes and picking apart the balls.
It’s such a treat to watch him explore different materials. Above is his final nature painting! See invitations to explore, create, & play for more!
