For Sweet Pea, we did the paint drop routine again...I dropped little globs of green and white paint and she spread it around. I just dropped them on the bottom half, so that's where most of the green paint stayed. Then we let the paint dry for several days.
I had planned to have the kids use straws to add the fall leaves to the trees, like in the examples from the original. However, after making the fall leaves for our windows, I thought we'd use the scraps instead since they were so leaf-like and pretty. Little Brother LOVES to cut paper up. You give him paper and scissors and it will keep him entertained for half an hour. He'll even do it into the trash if you ask him to. He just loves to cut paper up. So the next time he asked to cut paper, I gave him the scraps and asked him to cut them into a bowl.
After reading LEAVES, LEAVES, LEAVES by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace for our preschool time, we got their paintings out again. (Awesome book, by the way, although better suited to kindergarten and older I think...can't wait to check out some of her other books.) This time I gave each child a bowl with a little Mod Podge in it and a ball point pen. (You could use regular glue too.) I had them use the back of the pen to dip in the Mod Podge and then put a dot on their paper. Then they put some of the paper scraps on their dot.
