WATER DROPLET LEAF ART


I’m still swooning over these water droplet leaves! There’s something so fresh and captivating about them – and I love that the photos act as a type of bonus art. It’s basically a two-for-one activity




WHAT YOU NEED:

  • water droppers (ours are from the dollar store!)

  • various leaves

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Go on a nature walk to collect various leaves.

  2. Give a mini-lesson on how to use the water droppers. It takes a little practice to get used to!

  3. Add water droplets to your leaves until your nature-loving heart is content

ACTIVITY EXTENSIONS:

  • Try using flower petals instead of leaves!

  • Add some food colouring to the water to create coloured water droplets!

  • Photograph the water-covered leaves!

  • Look into the science of water droplets!

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • Which leaves are your favourites? Why?

  • How else are water droppers used?

  • What other tools have you learned to use recently?

  • What are some things you can tell yourself when you are learning something new?

THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:

  • finding joy in a nature walk

  • learning how to use a new tool

  • showing perseverance while learning a new skill

We hope this simple – yet, fascinating! – activity brings some beauty to a summer evening at your place. Tag us @theartstadium so we can join the viewing party!

Happy connecting!


XOXO,

Lindsay
