This trip to the country had the perfect balance of nature time and art time. Both outside and inside, we played, painted and made art.
Which is so much fun with kids because they just go at it. No hesitations, no over-thinking, no over-planning, or worrying about final products. Just the joy of messing with colour, marks, textures, glue! The happiness of making a big mess. (The “blue gloves” hands- I didn’t exactly allow this- it happened while my back was turned…and was he ever pleased with himself.)
We went out collecting rocks and flowers and the like in the morning, so A. got an idea for a collage she wanted to make with what she found.
My sister Eva helped her put it together with the magic of the glue gun.
These awesome houses got drawn by A.
And I love this EA. abstract. (When asked, most drawings are “the moon” or “a boat”, or occasionally a soccer or basketball.)
Even Mama got to play around for awhile. Must have another Art Frenzy day soon.
