Whether you’re going camping or just taking a trip to the local park, teach your kids all about nature with this painting activity for kids. Collect leaves, flowers or branches then take them back home and paint a picture or create a craft project with your little ones. The best part is you don’t even need a paint brush. Watch the video below to get the how-to.
