Fall projects to do with your child!
It is fall and it is cold. With our littlest team member’s words (he’s 3), it’s raining leaves! 🍂
We enjoy the fall by incorporating it into our projects as much as we can. Here is a tree from a little hand and some leaves we collected from backyard. Making this art work was fun but collecting leaves with a “project” in mind was the best part. Telling kids that you had an idea and giving them a task of finding you the best leaves they could find… there is your 10-15 minutes of break! 😉
And here is a free study. I only asked “what else? What else you think you can do with these leaves” and Maya came up with “Maya the Bee” idea. She drew a bee and glued leaves as its wings. How creative is that!
OK, ok. This is me being creative a little. I wasn’t like this, I swear. But I guess making “art projects” with kids using random stuff around the house and trying to tie them with a relevant theme gave me this weird imagination skill. Now, isn’t this little ballerina lovely ❤. What’s even more lovely is to show kids that they too can have an unlimited imagination and then seeing them at work – like “fall bees” above 🐝
