Fall Sponge Painting
Draw a tree trunk with branches on brown construction paper. Cut and glue the tree trunk on white construction paper. Cut out small leaf shapes from a new sponge. Dip the sponges into different fall colors, and press them on the construction paper with the tree trunk.
Trace your child's hands on fall-colored construction paper or thin sheets of colored foam and cut them out. Glue the hands on a large circle. (You can cut out the center of a paper plate for this and leave about an inch thickness around the edges.) Glue decorations such as acorn shapes and a bow, as well as a piece of yarn to use to hang it. This is a keepsake that you can decorate with for years.
