“…let nature be your teacher.”

~ William Wordsworth

For this last installment of our Outdoor Art Blog Series, we are going to look at nature’s beauty and some of the fun art projects you can do with things that are found outdoors. Living in the North East, it is vital to soak up the last few warm weeks that summer has to offer before the days turn cold and the snow falls. So, for this week’s materials, let’s go on a nature walk!

Armed with buckets in hand and superhero capes on our backs, we set out on our nature walk.

The woods are a great place to go and find various items to use in nature projects. If you don’t have a wooded area close by, have no fear; just take a walk in your backyard or on your sidewalk and look for items. Remember to take only items that have fallen to the ground such as pine needles, pine cones, sticks, etc.

Once you are home, gather your nature supplies, along with a few other staples. We decided to make funny faces, so we needed cardboard cut into an oval or circle, scissors, glue, and google eyes.

Then let your imagination go wild!

Here are some other fantastic project that can be found online:
