Autumn trees

We have had so much fun watching the trees change and it was great to make a poster to remind us of it.

First we used white crayon to draw some wispy clouds.
Then use blue paint for the sky (lovely for the children to magically see their previously invisible white clouds).
Use fingers for the branches. Biggest fingers first and then smaller and smaller.
Keep those fingers still when you do the print.
Lovely trees ready to be decorated.
Glue some sand on the ground and then start gluing on your leaves. Start with the green tree and work your way down, talking about how the leaves have changed and how different the trees look.
