Here’s some rainy day fun to do with your littles this fall. It’s an easy craft that lets them explore texture and color (and make a bit of a mess too!). I find that E and I are constantly talking about the scenery whenever we’re in the truck together and as the seasons change we are both captivated by the beauty of nature and all the colours in our valley. Next time you’re out and about stop and take in the fall display (I know that far too soon it’s going to be covered in white!) and then gather up some on-hand supplies to make your own snapshot art of the season!
All you need is some paint, paper, markers and then whatever interesting forms of texture you can come up with. We used q-tips bundled up with an elastic, corks, and bunched up tin-foil. Let your little draw a tree trunk with marker and then dip your “paintbrushes” in an array of fall coloured paint to create the leaves! So easy and so fun to see the colours mix and the textures blend. E has his artwork tagged to go to his Noma & Bubba and Grandma & Grandpa Stew (and I’m hoping one for me too!!). I can see this being a fun project to complete in every season! I’ve always had an adoration for the simplicity of a lone tree and love my little’s spin on it!
