Feather Painting

For this activity you can use colorful feathers from the craft store or bird feathers you find outside.

Materials

  • Feathers
  • Glue
  • Tempera paint
  • Paper

Directions

  1. Mix a little bit of glue with the tempera paint.
  2. Use feathers to brush the paint onto the paper.
  3. 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.)
  4. You can also try this with pine branches, leaves, flowers, or other natural objects that may be good for painting.
