Drawing a Garden

11 Aug


Ever wonder what your garden looks like through the eyes of your child?  Do they see the weeds {that you inevitably notice} or do they notice the massive tomato hanging low to the ground. Here’s a chance to find out!

Keeping with our Outdoor Art theme from earlier this week, here is another easy idea to get your family outside creating.



I brought out our markers, paper/notebooks and a blanket and laid it near our vegetable garden.

I encouraged the kids to draw something they saw in the garden.

One very large green tomato has now been commemorated in Silas’ notebook.

As for Sydney, she decided to draw grass and clouds instead.



As for me, I also drew our tomato plant, but took some artistic liberties and colored all the tomatoes red {instead of the green that they are}!

Still looking for more ideas on combining nature + art? Check out this post

    Judging by the look of your son’s hair, it was a warm summer day (either sweat or a run through the sprinkler).

    Great creative activity for the kids.
    I bet when they’re adults they will have fond memories of their outdoor art projects “sitting on the blanket drawing, painting, and creating”.

    I love the photos.
    Thanks for doing this blog and posting photos of the kids.
    We get to see them in their day-to-day activities, and see the world through their eyes. What joy and smiles all of you give to us.
    Love you ~ hugs and kisses
