Spring is in the air.

One of my favourite art activities each year is when the children paint daffodils - it really does seem that Spring has arrived once these cheery paintings are up on the wall. It also never ceases to amaze me how each child approaches this in their own unique way. Some start with the yellow flower first while others will paint the stalks in & then add the flowers.
Every year the incredible talent of the 3 & 4 year olds always impresses me. I hope they never lose their belief that they can paint anything they want to & that is no 'right' way to do it.

  1. These are so lovely! I cannot wait to see daffodils. I think we have awhile yet. I'm always amazed and in awe of children's ability to create truly beautiful artwork.

    1. With all your snow it might be a while yet indeed. I love that children this age don't have that 'I can't do that' attitude yet.

    1. So true, I think it's the perfect age with all that self belief that can be harnessed to create such lovely stuff. Thanks.

  5. Hi Kierna, Thanks for popping by. I enjoy OPP's great outdoors! A blessing to have such space and nature to explore! For us, we have limited space, but am contented to do the best out of whatever we have. : ) LOVE the paintings with first hand observation study. And totally cool to let them do their own observation!
