Nature Shake Painting
Today we are participating in the Summer Survival Series for Moms of Boys. This art activity is perfect for little active boys (or girls). It is creative, but with a moving component built in.
We did this Nature Shake Painting activity twice. Once at home with rocks we had collected on a hike and once while we were camping. Both times the procedure was similar.
Make sure to cut the paper down to fit into the box.
Invite your active one to join you for rock painting.
Help them fill a box with a piece of paper, a handful of rocks, and some squirts of paint.
Tape the box shut and then hand it back to them for some vigorous shaking.
Encourage them to shake, even run or dance around with their box. When they are done, help them open the box up and discover what their painting looks like.
The rocks are going to need a rinse if you are planning to keep them around. Otherwise, clean up is super simple with this activity.
Paper (cut to fit inside of the box)
*Try Running and Kicking the box
*What else can you paint with? Look for things around the campsite or on your hike that you think would make interesting prints on your paper. Pinecones? Acorns? Sticks?
