Mud Painting
Shared by artist Kate Eveson on Instagram, this is a great activity for getting the kids outside, getting messy and being creative!
1. Get in the garden or go for a walk to your local park and collect lots of things to paint with. Sticks, moss, feathers, whatever you can find.
2. Next collect some soil and mix with water to make your paint. You can experiment with different soils and consistencies.This bit is nice and messy so kids love it!
3. Get some paper, use the sticks, moss and other objects collected to write, make marks and paint. Get creative! 🤎Happy Mud Painting🤎
