The theme here is 'natural'. Here are some truly fun and simple kids' activities with the emphasis on NATURAL. And since they are 'natural' you'll be using mostly the free resources provided abundantly by Nature. As father many years ago of two beautiful daughters (Stacey and Katrina) then a very present grandfather to another three adorable girls (Alicia, Charli and Maddy), I feel well qualified to offer these ideas for kids' activities. For most grandfathers this means a time of just enjoying the occasional visit. Not the case when I became a 24x7 live-in grandfather to my newborn granddaughter Charli. In the end, at my own house, I spent more quality time with my granddaughter than even most Dads do in a lifetime This meant remembering, and fidning, new and fun activities to share. Which ended up becoming one of the best times of my life. And the activities we shared helped to make it so.
Gustave Moreau was a French Symbolist artist whose most important accent was the depiction of biblical and mythological figures. As a painter, Moreau appealed to the imaginations of some Symbolist writers and artists. He himself best explains the essence of his art: “I am dominated by one thing, an irresistible, burning attraction towards the abstract. The expression of human feelings and the passions of man certainly interest me deeply, but I am less concerned with expressing the motions of the soul and mind than to render visible, so to speak, the inner flashes of intuition which have something divine in their apparent insignificance and reveal magic, even divine horizons, when they are transposed into the marvelous effects of pure plastic art.” During his lifetime, Moreau produced more than 8,000 paintings, watercolors and drawings.
Caspar David Friedrich was a German Romantic landscape painter, generally considered the most important German artist of his time and one of the most original geniuses in the history of landscape painting. He is best known for his mid-period allegorical landscapes which typically feature contemplative figures silhouetted against night skies, morning mists, barren trees or Gothic ruins. His primary interest as an artist was the contemplation of nature, and his often symbolic and anti-classical work seeks to convey a subjective, emotional response to the natural world.
