We started our Fall theme today! I love fall and I have so many cool projects to share with you this week. First up is beautiful leaves. I traced a few different kinds of leaves onto paper and put out red, yellow and orange paint with sponges. The kids dipped the sponges in the paint and blotted their paper with them.
Fun Fact: The red, orange and yellow color of leaves is always there, even in the summer. It is the chlorophyll in a plant's leaves that makes them look green. But in the fall, the chlorophyll breaks down and the green color begins to disappear. That's when the leaves' other colors show through.
