Painting Leaves

We have been playing with leaves.
Shaking them from the tree and raking them up
into baskets.
An invitation to paint leaves the same colours as the ones we are seeing outside.
Watercolour paints and leaf shaped paper invited them to paint.
Mixing the paint and water was a side bonus for the toddlers.
I noticed calmness and focus.
The children really enjoyed this activity and we had so many leaves
that we used them as a border on our bulletin board.
