Kids Craft | Painting with Nature



J wanted to paint while Lego-boy was at school the other day.  So, when we got home after dropping him off, we went on an adventure in our yard to find stuff to use as "brushes".  Here's what we found and how we used them!  Plus, we put a couple of the spiky balls from a Sweet Gum tree, a couple paint drops and a piece of paper inside an old oatmeal container and shook it.  The paper turned out really cool!  We used an old cashew can for Jaycee's when she did it.  I had those containers sitting around thinking I'd do something with them and they finally served their "second" purpose!
