Would You Consider This Art?


We spent nearly two hours out in the yard yesterday evening. What started off as painting the yard with a paintbrush dipped in water, became wet chalk drawing on the pavement, became scavenging the yard for rocks and leaves and dried flowers, became sorting and arranging the natural materials onto the different coloured chalk drawing, became carefully pouring, scraping and sprinkling dirt intentionally over the chalk drawing.


I would never have envisioned this to be the end product of nearly two hours of outdoor play, couldn’t if I tried, and I’m so beyond thankful that these are the days of her childhood. Click here to see videos of the process 🙂
