Kid's Nature Art

My kids love to go on nature walks. We've done a couple projects during the fall with stuff collected on walks, like pine cones, acorns, and other fall matter. I saw this idea in this month's Family Fun magazine to draw a stick figure on paper and dress it up with nature's garments. I was excited to do this during a different season. I really thought we had enough growing in our own back yard to forgo the blazing HOT walk around the neighborhood, but no, the children insisted.

Taking her collection out of her satchel

She took apart the wheat-looking grass and used the seeds for hair

Careful, meticulous placement of the Impatiens Petals

Chives (chopped) for hair. I really loved this idea.


The girls' works of art: Angel Fairy on the Left, college graduate wearing a loin cloth on the Right???

And a couple more composed along the way. Mine on the left....I had such fun doing this project! And the girls made another batch the next day.


  1. this is such a great idea...

  2. Now I'm just going to call you "Mother Earth!"... {Will you be MY mommy? YOU'RE so fun!}

  3. I think we will do this today. =)
