On the walk back from school the other day the wee girl collected leaves. Well, she pointed at the ones she wanted and I collected them for her (she was in the stroller!). Woe betide me if I picked up the wrong one…!
After the success of our flower garden painting, as soon as we got home, she asked if she could do painting with leaves, so we decided to make a collage with autumn leaves.
Of course she could!
So, out came the supplies:
How to make a collage with autumn leaves
Glue (no pink sparkly stuff this time, but I also couldn’t find any PVA, so used fabric glue! It did the job)
Paper plates (to use as a paint palette, must buy her a reusable one!)
Plus, our collection of beautifully coloured autumn leaves :)
She chose purple paper and blue, purple, white and brown paint.
And, off she went. She struggled to squeeze the glue out, so I splodged it as directed, but that was my only input.
Another brilliantly engaging activity for her and allowing her free rein is just wonderful to watch. She is definitely making decisions now based on what she would like to see, rather than completely random splodging!
