Day #35 Amazing Autumn Art

by Sara le Roux,  Owner and Inspirer at sara le rouxThe Creation Station Penistone and District

Now that the clocks have gone back the evenings are drawing in so much earlier and it is still dark when you wake up – it just makes you want to crawl back under the duvet and stay there until Spring!  Today I decided to let Boo brighten our day by creating some colourful Autumn pictures using a bit of an unusual ‘paint brush’

What You’ll Need

  • Autumn paint colours – we used Crayola washable
  • A dish brush (not the one you wash your pots with!)
  • Paper/Card – we used card that I had printed a picture of a tree trunk onto (you could easily draw this too)

Boo looked at me very strangely when I handed him the dish (paint) brush but he quickly got the hang of it and started to create wonderful Autumnal patterns.

I had given him the tree template to try and encourage him to create the ‘leaves’ of the tree with his brush.  He did get a little excited as he was painting so it wasn’t quite as neat as maybe it should be – ah well… It’s a design feature!

We had so much paint left over after Boo had finished his tree picture that he insisted on using more card and creating a lovely finger painted picture which the whole family had to have a go at!
