While doing it with our Canadian nanny, V., we were revising the autumn colours and talked about why leaves change colours in the autumn.
So after snack time when our nanny, V. arrived they sat down together to start painting.
(I didn't prepare much for this activity. I just put out the paint - orange, yellow, red, and brown -. a palette and two sheets of paper with a bare tree drawn on them. I forgot to take a "before" photo. 😒)
The painting could start. E. squirted the paints on the palette, which is a great activity to strengthen the muscles in her hands).
They made dots on the branches.
Autumn leaves are falling down.
Using both sides of the cork is rather messy...
