Back Yard Art Projects for Summer!

My friend/photographer, Allison of English Photography, is doing the COOLEST backyard art projects this summer with her kids and friends.  I have loved reading about it...and hope to get the energy to do some of the projects with my own kids soon.  She has been doing them all at her house each week...maybe you could get together with some friends, and take turns hosting.

MARBLED PAPER ICE CREAM COLLAGE

They discussed how Eric Carle makes pictures...and then learned how to marble paper.  After it was dry, they used it to make ice cream collages.


BACKYARD AQUARIUMS

They used all different colors and patterns of tissue paper between wax paper to make beautiful aquariums.



SAND ART

They used glue and colored sand to make these flags.


VEGGIE PICTURES!

These were the tools they used:


Then they used a faster drying ink instead of paint to make fun faces!


I think this is such a fun way to add creativity to our little ones lives!!!

Thanks Chelsea- We are having a fun time in the backyard and I am thrilled someone else is enjoying it too. I can't tell you how exciting it is to know someone else cares. I just LOVED photographing your family again, you out did yourself on the clothes again. I know you will love the rest of the images. Hope you're having a relaxing time back at home. Thanks a million.
Allison
