15 Outdoor Art Activities: Kid's Co-op

15 fun and messy outdoor art projects for kids

You can take almost any art activity outside, but these ten art ideas from the Kid's Co-op were made for the great outdoors. Some use natural materials and others make such a glorious mess that the only place for them is outside the house. Either way, you can grab some supplies and head outside with your kids to create some art and memories.
