Leaves & Nature

Nature Imprints with Paint

With a sponge brush we applied different colored paint to leaves, rocks, acorn shells, pine cones etc. and pressed them to paper to see the imprint they left or didn't leave.

He saw that just because something has texture, like a pine cone it doesn't mean that it will leave a nice print.  It just left little dots where the prickly part of the pine cone picked up the paint.

Animal "Tracks" in Paint

Animal "tracks" - Used a foam brush to paint onto the bottom of plastic animal figures and stamped it on the paper to make tracks.  He also used the figures to "stomp" into the paint and then stamp, without using a brush.
