Outdoor Art – Forest Creations


I love being outside and my kids love art.  We end up creating a lot of outdoor art.  On a beautiful day, children collected materials as we walked around the yard.  They were challenged to create a small house or structure for a small critter.

They then created a small house using just the materials they collected, which turned into a whole village.  It was quite the creation.  I love the idea of creating outdoor art using only the materials around them.  They were so proud of what they made.  I was really impressed by the variety of materials that students found, and the colours!

To extend this, I would give students small toys (small people, cars) and allow them to play in their ‘community’.
