Art ideas needed

I would like to do an art project at the park with my kinders. We "adopt" a tree at the park and visit it 7x during the year, and this Friday is our last visit. We have already done a black sharpie drawing of our tree, and then watercolored it when we got back to class. We also took a rock back and painted it. Any other ideas? The trick is that we walk to the park, so I can't be hauling a ton of art stuff with me. I'd love something that incorporates nature and our tree in some way if possible. There is also a creek so we have water to use.

I did see mud painting, where they colored mud with food coloring and painted with it. Anyone tried that?

Is your tree big enough to do bark rubbings?

Google leaf art. There’s a ton of adorable things you can make with your tree’s leaves, paper, and a little glue.

We've done a few bark rubbings. They love it!

I've done different lessons on how trees are represented by various artists. Perhaps Van Gogh,Kandinsky or a sculpting lesson where the kids carry their clay to the spot and you do a basic sculpting lesson. For many years I had the class keep track of the changes in the tree outside our large window by drawing and using various tools for putting color into the artwork. The tree journal was kept all year.

Spatter paint with toothbrushes over twigs with leaves?
Back at the classroom, press leaves into clay or lay leaves on construction paper to make a sunprint.
This takes more than an hour or so on a sunny day.
