art group :: nature pressing

I could have the art group just paint stuff every week! I think paint is the funnest. But, it is good to branch out a bit, doncha think?

So this week, I grabbed a bag of sculpy stuff (what is that stuff called?) and then Enrique and I collected some flowers, leaves, and sticks from the yard.


We used our treasures to make press marks in the clay.


We had to use a wooden block to press them down, but it worked great!



The kids were pretty captivated trying different things until the rain threatened to run everyone inside.



Enrique got totally into making sculpy people. For the rest of the afternoon and into the night he was at it. Concentrating very hard.

Great idea, and looks like the kids had fun (until the rain arrived)!

Such a lovely post... perfect for my 'Fridays Nature Table' today... I'd be honored it you'd pop over and post it.
Blessings and magic.
