I stitched this garland of fall leaves together to decorate our classroom. The children loved seeing their art hanging like this over the entryway to our kitchen. Along with the watercolor leaves we did some squishy paint leaves. I think I may like these even more.
The children selected and squeezed their own paint on top of their watercolor leaf shapes. They also selected which leaf they wished to paint. Sometimes painting up two or three more.
After squeezing their paint, they placed a different sheet of paper over their work are and got ready to smoosh!
They smooshed and rubbed and rubbed and smooshed!
Aren't the colors fantastic? We used bottled tempera from Discount School Supply. Such nice happy colors!
