Here’s a lovely eco art project that we’ve created as part of our Kids Art Explorers projects.
This month the Art Explorers are seeing what they can create using natural, outdoor materials. You can browse all the ideas already linked up below, and join in and make something with your own children, but first we’d like to introduce our puppets.

Our Art Explorers project is back and we’re inviting you to join in with us and try something new with your children this month.
Art Explorers is all about investigating what art you can create with different materials. We love to see how things turn out, but the main focus is on enjoying the process of exploring new materials, combining things in different ways and simply seeing how your kids’ creativity and imagination flows.
In the past the Art Explorers have tried yarn art, going paper free and painting with anything apart from a paint brush. Are you up for this month’s challenge? Read more »
As part of our Kids Art Explorers project this month we are trying out different places to create art. Instead of so often starting out with a small piece of white paper we’re trying out different surfaces. Last week we used a big, flat cardboard box to make an imaginary land. This time we’re using newspaper and turning yesterday’s news into today’s art.
Never mind the contents, empty cardboard boxes are such treasures. My daughters have been know to ‘reserve’ cardboard boxes as they arrive, especially if they are extra big or unusual shapes. This weekend there were no squabbles as the packaging for two fold-up camping tables provided them each with a big cardboard boxes they could create with.
