En Plein Air is the fancy-frenchy way of saying “in the open air”. The weather is starting to warm up and painting/drawing/making in the outdoors is one of my favorite things to do with the kids when the long dreary wet winter and spring leave way for the sun and warmth.
We don’t alway need an easel with us when we are outside, but it is fun if you have one. Clipboards can easily offer a nice work space outdoors too. Other things we have taken outside include:
CHALK (SIDEWALK AND DRAWING CHALK)
SHARPIES AND PENCILS
