STEAM Learning Lab – Earth Balloon Painting

Let’s paint a picture of our planet, as seen from space! This activity is a great way to try painting with some different materials. The half-filled balloons present a fun challenge and lets your child play with the shapes that the balloon makes on the paper. The round shape of the Earth works well with the circular “brush strokes” of the balloon.

STEAM Learning Lab – Spring Plant Prints

Now that everything outside is blooming, it’s the perfect time to make plant art! This could also be a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day! This activity preserves the image of the plants on a beautiful background. It is also a good chance to experiment with art activities that use multiple, different tools to make a single piece of artwork-also known as mixed media art!
