For this activity you can use colorful feathers from the craft store or bird feathers you find outside.
- Tempera paint
- Mix a little bit of glue with the tempera paint.
- Use feathers to brush the paint onto the paper.
- If you like, leave a few feathers on the painting to make a feather collage. (When the paint dries, the glue mixed with it will make the feathers stick.)
- You can also try this with pine branches, leaves, flowers, or other natural objects that may be good for painting.
