Mind Body Soul Summer: Animal Nature Art

Combining the beauties of nature and a creative imagination can produce amazing art! This activity involves spending some time collecting items from the outdoors. *While leaves and flower petals can add bold colors,  we encourage you to find items already separated from it’s life source.  


Here are some suggestions:  Leaves, sticks, pine cones, petals, etc. 

Paper and glue



Use your nature collection to design pictures of animals, people or landscapes. We suggest planning the entire picture before gluing to the paper.  

Take it a little further:

Use your imagination and create a new species of creature! Maybe a Crocodile-Bird or a Flamingo-Kitten!  What would it look like? Use the items you collected to bring your picture to life!
