Nature Painting with Plants
We took plants and flowers from a little hike, put them into colour groupings and mashed them one by one in a foil bowl with a pestle with a little bit of water ( I wonder now whether oil might have been more effective?).
Then we strained the coloured juice back into containers and painted on birch bark.
It was a very faint coloured paint, you could add berries, fruits, and veggies perhaps to strengthen it. I think it was more the process that the kids enjoyed than the actual painting at the end.
