Wow is it cold outside!

Autumn seems to have swept in with an icy blast and we are already bundling up like we are about to go out on an arctic expedition!

Today I decided to share this week’s ‘Little Explorer’ session with Boo and create a lovely Autumnal collage….

What You’ll Need

  • Paint – we used Crayola washable in autumn colours (green, yellow, orange and red) and also some shimmery gold paint (very nice!)
  • Autumn collage – leaves, feathers – whatever you have in or can collect from your garden/park/neighbourhood.  I had some paper leaves that I had cut out of sugar paper in different colours, and also some amazing silk leaves in beautiful reds and yellows.
  • PVA glue and spreader
  • Paper – we used sugar paper

Boo was very excited that we were getting the paints out again.  We are starting to see a lot more paintings coming home from pre-school now so it’s definitely becoming a firm favourite in our house 🙂

He LOVED the gold paint!!

There were squeals of delight and ‘ooooooohs’ as he swirled it around and mixed it with the other colours.

After he had finished his background colours we began adding our collage.  I had paper and silk leaves left over from classes this week so we used those to create our picture.  After a tickling session we also added some feathers before Boo declared it was ‘finished Mummy!’
