Autumn – or Fall – is here, as evidenced by the abundance of leaves tumbling down.

We headed out to play on the crunchy yellow brown carpet, and collected a load to bring home and paint.

The leaves inspire creativity by their own varied design – a testament to their Creator of course. 🙂

You could paint along the spines and veins, or section off geometric shapes, or glue on a googly eye to create a fish or bird.  We just used plain old poster paints to paint ours.

If you have a bunch of leaves then why not mount them for a collage, or string them up in a garland.  A couple of lolly sticks even turned some of ours into puppets.
