Tots! Activity: Earth Day Paintings

Tots! Activity: Earth Day Paintings

As Cheekwood’s Tots program is temporarily suspended, we are sharing today’s activity for parents and tots to activate at home. Use our files to create your own Earth Day painting, then share your work with us by tagging @cheekwood on Instagram and using #cheekwoodtots!

Here’s what you’ll need:

• Leaves, twigs, rocks, flowers, or any other natural item found outside

• Paintbrushes or spray bottles

• Paper

• Paint (watercolor or watered down tempera)


Try pairing the activity with one of these books:

The Curious Garden by Peter Brown

The Tree Lady: The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Woman Changed a City Forever by H. Joseph Hopkins

The Green Giant by Katie Cottle
