Fall is in the air here in Canada!
Here are the Autumn projects Butterfly has been working on!
Check out this pastel picture that Butterfly worked on in her Art Book!
I printed out these leaf cut outs on card paper and cut them out, then we used some painter's tape and Butterfly arranged them on her page.
We picked out Fall coloured pastels,
and coloured out around the edges of the leaves.
Then with a finger, Buttefly smudged the pastel colours out!
Which looks like this...
Then remove the leaf!
Getting a picture like this!
We didn't want to waste the leaf cut-outs that now have pastel colours on them, so we turned to a new page in Butterfly's Art Book and she drew her own tree in brown marker,
and glued her leaf cut-outs on it!
Another art project we did, was a tissue leaf tree. I cut out a brown tree for Butterfly, she glued it down on top of another paper. I brought out square-cut tissue papers in Fall leaf colours.
Butterfly scrunched the tissue squares to make leaves and glued them down on her tree.
Which makes a beautiful Autumn tree!
All those Fall leaves look like they're dancing in the wind!
Another art project, we squirted Fall coloured paints in a tray, and Butterfly drew a forest of trees on a glossy finger paint sheet of paper.
She then dipped her finger tips in the paint and printed finger tip leaves on top of the tree branches and on the forest floor.
Leaves falling down...
Another Autumn Beauty!
I found these great Fall mazes and fun activity sheets from Busy Bee Kids Printables.
Books are always important in whatever theme we are learning, here are the Fall books Butterfly and I have been enjoying together:
Happy Fall! :)
