This how to make dandelion paint project is such a fun nature craft for kids that they'll be begging you to make homemade paint from flowers all the time! Definitely add making natural paint from plants to your creative projects for kids, dandelion crafts, or ecofriendly kids activities for spring fun or summer ideas. You'll love making this easy flower watercolor with children and learning how to make yellow paint from dandelions!

As Big Brother is getting older it's really interesting to see both his interests and skills develop into more specific skill sets. Lately he's been really interested in the building of things (mostly stemming from a love of Legos, Magnatiles, and our wooden railroad track.) As he leans that way I'm finding myself looking for other creative ways to develop those interests and skills. A few weeks ago he had the chance to observe a beaver dam up close with my husband on one of their nature…

As summer break comes to a close and garden plants are ready for harvest, what can you do with the leaves of the plants you pull out, besides compost them? Leaf prints! Leaf prints are fun easy to make, and depending on whether you do it as art alone or as an extension to a botany lesson this activity spans the age ranges from K-12!
