I liked a recent blog post on Mommy Labs about creating all different sorts of stamps, especially using leaves and flowers. So we packed up our paints and joined up with one of our neighbors for some outdoor craft time. I encouraged The Whirl Girl to think of her visit to the Malaysian jungle while she was making her artwork.
The first step was to roam around our outdoor space collecting different kinds of leaves.
- a big sheet of paper
- paints: we used a mix of Crayola washable paints
- paint brushes (optional)
- leaves, collected from the ground
Then The Whirl Girl painted them, with her fingers...
...and with brushes.
And stamped them on the paper.
More fun with a friend!
