First, we got out construction paper and found a variety of leaves in the yard. Put rocks on top & let the sun do it's magic. It's supposed to fade and leave leaf prints behind. Works in theory but we just did not do what we were supposed to. Like leave it alone for a few hours. Hard for kids not to want to check on it every ten minutes. In addition, they placed it where the sun moves and then it turns to shade. You need full sun for 3 to 4 hours at least. Going to attempt this on another day.
Nik, making sure his leaves are placed exactly right. The two "littles" were also participating w/ this project. It was a gorgeous day for it for sure.
We moved onto painting when we saw that the leaf prints were going to be a fail this go around. Some kids painted their pumpkins different colors. Nik told me he wanted a scary face on his. He tried to paint a mini jack-o-lantern. Not too bad.
