Thanks for the reminder of natural outdoor art. I sometimes miss our studio time when we spend so much time outside, but of course, it's all there with us.
I remember many hours of my own childhood spent using one rock to write onto another. A pleasant and calming activity. Will have to make sure to get out and do that with my girls. Thank you for the reminder of a fun childhood time :)
I love the environments your kids get to play in! I really wish we had somewhere to o and play like that .. or when we did find them there weren't snakes there sitting there looking at me ... LOL
I used to draw with rocks all the time when I was young but I've never thought to do it with my kids.
We've been using charcaol as well this past week Jenny ... but when I checked in the storeroom I couldn't find ANY bush ... so our children had to settle for paper! :(I'll say it again ... what lucky, lucky children!Donna :) :)
beautiful pics! yes we love drawing on anything with anything too - just have to watch that it's in the right places LOL
Thanks for your comments. I also remember doing this as a kid - I also loved pounding down rocks and mixing them with water to make "paint" - just remembered that then :)
I can't wait to go outside tomorrow with my children and draw with rocks. I remember doing this all of the time when I was younger, but had completely forgotten about it until I saw your post.
Your kids are so lucky to be living where they do, Jenny, and going to your school. I wish so much that we had some real nature to spread out in around the school.
I was just thinking about charcoal myself recently, wanting to get my hands on some for 'creating' :) I love your photos and the environment around your preschool looks absolutely divine for exploration, inspiration and creation.
