- A tree branch or stick
- Colored pencils, crayons, pastels, markers, watercolor paints, etc.
- Masking tape
- Yarn, ribbon, or string
1.) First, find some natural materials. You’ll need a branch, palm frond, or twig from the garden. As you can see in our photo, we used a stick.
2.) Gather more natural materials such as leaves, flowers, and twigs. Various pieces of nature will work beautifully for this activity. Get creative! What will you find?
3.) Next, take out your paper. Choose your colored pencils, crayons, or paints.
4.) Start drawing or painting on the paper. Be playful and expressive! Experiment with textures, designs, and colors. What do you feeling like making today?
5.) When you are finished, use the scissors to cut out your paper into different shapes. You can opt for simple shapes like circles or triangles. Feel free to also create your own unique designs!
6.) Afterwards, take out your yarn or string. Cut it into various lengths to hang each piece of paper.
7.) Next, use the tape to attach each piece of yarn to each piece of paper.
8.) Now, tie your papers onto the tree branch so that they hang.
9.) You can also hang your leaves, flowers, and twigs from the branch next to your artwork.
10.) Find a nice place to hang your artwork. Enjoy your own design by adding more pieces each day. Keep creating!
