Nature Rubbings

Today we explored a new outdoor project.
We created nature rubbings!
We used white paper and crayons to rub the texture of things like bark, leaves and rocks. The kids really enjoyed this activity and we used their finished rubbings to create unique works of art.

My sister and I used to do this with our mom when we were little. Thanks for the reminder. We are going to do this tomorrow.

We do that at the children's museum. And, come to think of it, my daughter is probably old enough for that now, too. Thanks for the idea.

What a great idea, and a chance for kids (and adults) to enjoy the outdoors whilst extending this into their creativity.
