    fall art ideas
    By pattyk

    for what they are worth...have kids draw with crayon the trunk and branches of a tree, then sponge paint the 'leaves' using fall colors. Go on a leaf hunt and bring in a leaf, have children look closely at the leaves and notice the 'veins' and how they branch out, let them draw what they see. Let them try watercolors to paint an autumn scene ( I kinda like watercolors cause they are mostly water, clean up quickly, and don't seem to stain as deeply). Have kids make paper leaf crowns after looking at leaves and finding different types (pre-make some patterns for those who want to trace leaves that are brittle.) Hope these ideas help.
