This month’s art activities for kids are all about feathers! Mostly they’ll involve abstract art which is brilliant because it’s so freeing for little ones to just go with the flow. Put on some music in the background and let them loose! So, here is today’s project… abstract feather painting.
Even when we encourage kids to create their own art rather than copy others, some children struggle because they think there’s a ‘right’ or ‘better’ way to do it. Abstract art doesn’t generally have recognisable elements, that is, there are no trees and flowers sitting in front of a house. This helps even those most perfectionist of kiddos to accept that it’s OK to let their feather fly!
What you need
- White paper or card of any size
- Tempera or finger paints watered down a little
- Glitter (if you want to add it to the paint)
- 1 (not too small) feather for each child

I hope your kids love experimenting with their feathers and create some beautiful artwork.
I wish you happy teaching and learning!
