Decorating the Campsite

We like turning our campsite into an outdoor atelier, of sorts, with clothes pins, twine and the fruits of some of our messier outdoor art projects. Let the glue and paint and sparkles fly.

Bubble Painting
Paper, straws, cups each 1/3 filled with watered-down, non-toxic paint (if the paint is too concentrated, the bubbles will leave less of a mark). Add several drops of dish soap to each cup.

Spray Painting
Watercolour paint, water, watercolour paper, and pump sprayers.

Mixed Media — Night Camping Scene
Dark construction paper, glue, sparkles, scissors, old magazines, pastels and found sticks /soil/pebbles from around camp.

Pinwheels
Pre-printed templates (found here), construction paper, old magazines, glue, sparkles, scissors, and pencils with erasers and stick pins.
