Beautiful Landscape Projects for Kids

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.

Monet Inspired Sponge Painting

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 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.

Hummingbird Craft with Printable

The thing that I love about printables is that there is no one way that you have to use them. My daughter teaches me that every time we do a project together. This week we had fun making hummingbirds. Our hummingbird template got a lot of use and we made several using different media.

Wrapped Yarn Resist Birch Tree Paintings

A while back my daughter and I had fun experimenting with yarn and canvas to create a few interesting pieces of abstract resist art. I stumbled across those pieces the other day and remembered how much fun they were to make. Looking at them, gave me idea. I love birch trees and thought that this technique might work well for making birch tree paintings. With a little help with my little girl, we played around with this method. We love the results and are excited about how simple and pretty these are. Wrapped yarn resist birch tree paintings for every season. Kids arts and crafts projects. Inspired by artist Gustav Klimt
