Sponge or dabber
Let's get started:
Go on a scavenger hunt and fine beautiful fall leaves lying around. Choose the finest collected leaf and put some scotch tape on the back. Place it fairly close to the center of your piece of paper. Once that is secured take your sponge and cut it into 4 smaller sponges.
Lay out small drops of different fall colors (be sure and include a mix of light and dark colors) of paint and dip each piece of sponge into each color. Let your kids explore mixing the different colors and mimicking the gorgeous colors that fall can bring!
Once they have made it all around the leaf they can begin to sponge paint around the rest of the paper until it is covered with only a little bit showing through. Peel off your leave, remove the scotch tape, and admire your fall art project!
