Fall Art Projects

Hi everyone! Here are some of my favorite fall art projects that I'd like to share with you.

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.

Fall Wreath
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.

Johnny Appleseed Art
Slice an apple in half. Dip the halves into red poster paint, and press them onto white construction paper. Next, paint stems and leaves. For a variation, you can also use yellow and green paint to represent the different colors of apples.

I LOVE making apple prints with my own kids. I have a picture they made hanging in my classroom, and a few more in our dining room. So simple, and yet, so wonderful!

TAMARA!!!!! I am STILL pinching myself for having the opportunity to be interviewed on "your" newest project -- YOUR RADIO STATION!!!

Of course I dearly appreciate Charity and everything she's done for me over these past several weeks. What an HONOR to have the opportunity to be the subject of her first interview!!! I am so grateful for your launching this newest endeavor on behalf of educators, for their enrichment of children.

I just got done with my 'all-day' keynote & I'll go see if I can figure out the widget & get some hot-links embedded.
