Art at the park

Taking our art materials with us in an art caddy when out and about is something we love to do. They are not always used but I think its nice to have art materials available if one of my children are feeling inspired by their surroundings. I wonder who else does this?

Art at the park

After a big play on the parks play equipment, we sat down together to have some snacks and draw and paint together, yes me included.

Here we have coloured triangular pencils, water-based paints, crayons, oil pastels and some white paper. To stop paper from flying away, we will bring our art journals next time. This time I forgot to pack them.

After a while we attracted quite a few large ants sitting on the ground with food so we moved our art materials to this cement bench area close by.

My 2 year old painting

This is the first time my 2 year old didn’t rush whilst painting. He spent a long time working on this picture, trying the different paint colours. Lots of concentration going on.

I think a portable art caddy is great. The one we have was sold as a BBQ caddy and we only paid AUD $10 for it. We take ours with us to lots of places; long drives, cafe, park, beach etc. If we do take ours to a cafe, depending on which one, I may not always take paint with us, but there is always other drawing materials and paper available.
