National Parks

Towering stone arches. Spectacular mountain ranges. Erupting volcanoes and geysers. These are just a few of the incredible natural features you'll see at national parks. In this month's art box, kids will be creating art inspired by these stunning natural wonders.

This art box introduces kids to the wonder of the unexpected. They'll mix up paint using shaving cream and sand. They'll paint with sponges and a balloon. Mist, stars, rocks, and mountains will form as they work and explore these new materials. When they're ready to take a break from creating, they'll recharge with the perfect hiking snack—trail mix!

Activities in the National Parks Box:
Arches National Park Galaxyscape
This park is a “Dark Sky Park” making it the perfect place for stargazing! In this art piece, kids will imagine what it's like to sit beneath a rock arch and watch the Milky Way galaxy above. They'll mix up a unique sand paint to give the arch a rocky texture and they'll create the galaxy using sponge painting.

Layered Smoky Mountains Landscape
The Great Smoky Mountains sitting in a foggy mist is the inspiration for this piece. Kids will use a layering technique to create a mountain landscape. Then, they'll add a sheet of vellum on top to give the appearance of mist. Crinkle-cut trees are the finishing touch.
