Landscape projects are a favorite of ours. I just adore the soft and peaceful feel of them. There are so many pretty scenes that you can create and there is a variety of ways in which you can do it. We dabble with different ways to create landscapes all the time and we love seeing and trying other ideas that we see too. We love this collection of fun and creative landscape projects for kids and we think that the adults will have fun with these too. I know that I do. Whether you want to use paints, pastels, construction paper, nature, magazines or even food, we have a beautiful landscape art idea here for you.
I love landscape art. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, it doesn’t matter. I love them all. And we love using different techniques to make our pretty landscapes. We have made beautiful landscapes using forks, yarn, sponges and now cardboard. These paint scraped landscapes are quick and easy to make and we just adore how they came out.
We have just returned from a wonderful two-week family vacation in Montana. While we were there, we visited the national parks and enjoyed a few scenic hikes with the Rocky mountains as our backdrop. The landscapes that we saw were breathtaking to say the least. Our recent trip inspired us to create a mountain landscape. Then our mountains inspired us to make a couple more. These watercolor silhouettes are perfect for toddlers to teens. Use the printable silhouette templates or create a silhouette of your own.
I am certain that I have said it a million times, but my daughter loves creating with nature. It doesn’t matter if we are making land art outside or crafting with it indoors, she loves it all. We share ideas with each other all of the time. I love coming up with new and fun projects for us to do together, but I love it even more when she takes the lead. She has a beautifully creative mind and it is wonderful to listen to her thought process. These nature jungle landscapes were the product of my daughter’s artistic mind and I love them.
As many of you know we moved last week. The new owners close on the house today, so yesterday we went to clean out our few remaining things & walk around our old home one last time to say goodbye. It was an emotional final walk through the empty house that we called home for so many years, but it is exciting anticipating the completion of our new home.
Our favorite time of year is around the corner again and with it all of that beautiful fall scenery. This project is inspired by our Paint & Fold Winter Reflections. This is a favorite technique of ours. It is a fun and simple way for the kiddos (and adults) to create beautiful reflections.
If you enjoy our Paint and Fold Autumn Reflections, you may also like some of our other autumn arts & crafts.
This weekend I took my daughter and my niece apple picking. Alongside the rows of apple trees were sunflowers as far as the eye could see. Those pretty sunflowers were the inspiration for our latest landscape painting. This field of sunflowers is perfect for the fall, super easy to make and looks just beautiful. Get your paint brushes ready little painters. This is going to be a fun one.
Fall is coming, my friends. Soon the air will get cooler and our landscapes will be filled with warm fall colors. I can hardly wait. I love the beauty of the changing leaves. They are even beautiful as they fall to the ground. My daughter and I made these lovely mixed media fallen leaves over the weekend to celebrate our love for the fall. I have to admit that, once again, my daughter’s project came out better than mine. So, here is my talented 6-year-old showing you how it is done.
We love crafts in motion. You get to create something wonderful and then have the added bonus of getting to play with it after. This driving car craft is a new favorite of ours. Watch your car drive through the city or a country road. Wherever you want to be, your little car and your imagination can take you there. Just draw or paint your landscape and make it happen.
My daughter and I love the famous artists. We also love playing around with different paint techniques. We combined the two for these Monet inspired landscape sponge paintings. The sponge created a wonderful backdrop for these impressionist style paintings. We chose Monet’s Water Lilies and Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies as our inspiration. These were quick, fun and easy, albeit a little bit messy, but we were both delighted at how they came out.
