Chanson La forÃªt. Fall Fun! Fall is in the air here in Canada! Here are the Autumn projects Butterfly has been working on! Check out this pastel picture that Butterfly worked on in her Art Book! I printed out these leaf cut outs on card paper and cut them out, then we used some painter's tape and Butterfly arranged them on her page. We picked out Fall coloured pastels, and coloured out around the edges of the leaves. Then with a finger, Buttefly smudged the pastel colours out!
Which looks like this... Then remove the leaf! Getting a picture like this! We didn't want to waste the leaf cut-outs that now have pastel colours on them, so we turned to a new page in Butterfly's Art Book and she drew her own tree in brown marker, and glued her leaf cut-outs on it! Another art project we did, was a tissue leaf tree. Butterfly scrunched the tissue squares to make leaves and glued them down on her tree. Which makes a beautiful Autumn tree!
All those Fall leaves look like they're dancing in the wind! Leaves falling down... Happy Fall! Mason Jar Fall Tree Luminaries Craft - Where Imagination Grows.

Kids Art: Make a fabulous fall collage using items from nature: Lately I’ve been gathering lots of fall crafts ideas while pouring over all my favourite blogs and facebook pages, and I’ve combined a couple of great activities to come up with this idea for a fabulous fall collage. For the Hooligans’ craft today, I combined a couple of ideas that I’ve seen recently. I got the awesome idea for paint smooshing from Moments of Mommyhood’s “no-mess finger-painting” and paired it with Sun Hats & Wellie Boots’ idea for 3D Autumn collages. How to make a fabulous fall collage: I think the photos are pretty much self-explanatory, but in case you’re wondering, we used acrylic craft paints for the smooshing.

Enjoy Autumn with this awesome collection of Fall Scavenger Hunts for kids that will inspire you to get out & explore this season! Do you know what I love most about Fall? I mean aside from the beautiful foliage, super easy leaf activities that kids love to do and the fact that I can pull out a few of my favorite sweaters :) I love that Fall has four mini-seasons -- it's the one time of year where I feel like there's a new start to the world every few weeks. Think about it, many of us consider the back-to-school time as early fall -- warmer days followed by cooler evenings.
Outdoor play sessions begin to shift to the late afternoon and nighttime walks reward us with a peek into nocturnal life. Then the weather shifts and Part 2 of Fall begins -- cooler days and nights, plus the gorgeous leaves that begin to change. The next two 'seasons of Fall focus around holidays -- there's Halloween season followed by Thanksgiving. And as always, we suggest using a 9 x 12" Clipboard. Creamalice.com - Photos du journal.

A Painted Branch // Collaborative Art with Kids. This week for art class I tried something new. Our neighbor (a church) cut down some branches and left them on our property. They’d been there a while, actually. We kept thinking they would clean them up. As I was staring at them from the kitchen window Monday morning I thought that I should really make a phone call. But then, a lightbulb went off in my brain. I’m quite certain it wasn’t an original thought (is there really such a thing anymore?) But maybe I could drag one of the branches inside and the kids could paint it for art class today?

Supplies: Tempera paints (I mixed colors and added a little white to each for opaqueness, except for the gold and silver) Glass jars Paint brushes Elmer’s glue Pom-poms There are really no instructions, no rules. After the branch was flipped over and painted on all sides, I brought out the glue and pom-poms to create some more texture. It’s hard to photograph such a long, skinny piece of art! Xo, Bar.

10 Best Nature Apps for Kids. Leaves. By Kate on September 22, 2014 I‘ve been having a clear out and came across some leaves that I pressed last year. I sprayed them with silver paint and they look ace. You could use them for all sorts of things – such as an autumnal garland or gift topper. I’m going to use mine as Christmas tree decorations (what do you think?). The best thing is that they are cheap and quick to make. I pressed my leaves in a heavy book. Finally I took them outside to spray them – my spraypaint is a bit smelly.
How to Preserve Leaves. Paper Plate Owls - happy hooligans - fall crafts for kids. Turn a paper plate and some craft scraps into an adorable Paper Plate Owl.. Here’s a cute, little fall craft for you! We made these paper plate owls on a total whim today! This morning, one of the hooligans said she’d like to make another owl craft. We’ve made adorable toilet roll owls, and more recently , our Spooktacular Hallowe’en Owls, so I had to put my thinking cap on to come up with something a little different for today’s craft. I took a peek through our craft cupbiards and I came across a stack of paper plates just itching to be put to good use. These owls involved several fun and interesting process, and I think they’re too cute for words! Ready? Gather your supplies: (for your convenience, Amaazon Affilifate links have been added to this post) The Process: The morning was cool so we started off inside; I began by having the hooligans decorate their plates.

Leaf Stamping - Craft Ideas for Kids. When I stumbled across this Leaf Stamping craft on Pinterest (Crafty By Photo), I had to try it out straight away and I am so pleased that I did. I love everything about leaf stamping. It’s simplicity, it’s effectiveness. The intricacies and essence of the leaf is captured beautifully and I can foresee leaf stamping becoming our craft of choice for home made gifts and cards.
From Olivia’s perspective, she loved the hammering aspect of leaf stamping, which is a great fine motor activity. Once I had explained how to use the hammer and where to position her hands; under supervision, she was well away! Acid free good quality paper A hammer Kitchen Roll A wooden chopping board A range of leaves Step 1 Position the paper on top of the wooden board and select a leaf. Step 2 Cover the leaf with a piece of kitchen roll and begin to gently tap the leaf surface area with the hammer. Step 3 Concentrate the tapping onto one area of the leaf until moisture begins to seep through the kitchen roll.
Step 4. Our nature shadow boxes in preschool. We have been collecting shoe box lids for a variety of activities and this one came straight from the wonderful artistic ideas shared by Casa Maria’s Creative Learning Zone…. To make these beautiful shadow boxes, the children started by pouring glue into shoebox lids. I wasn’t sure how much glue would be needed so I had them at least fill the lid with enough glue that the nature items could lay firmly in the glue… Next, the children went outside to collect nature items to put in their glue. I had the children go back and forth to collect something and instructed them to look for something different each time so they would have a variety of items to put in the glue… The children found leaves, sticks, pine needles, acorns, flowers, rocks, and a few other nature items to add to their boxes… I encouraged the children to be very selective as they searched for items to add to their shadow boxes.
Some of the children were very selective as to where they set their nature items in the box. Quirkymomma.com - Timeline Photos | Facebook. Fall Tree Craft. Mrspicasso's art room: Warm & Cool Swirling Leaves. I've been wanting to post about these for awhile, but Blogger kept rotating my photos. Finally, I figured out how to copy & paste them in from Picassa. Yay! I made these beauties with first graders. Materials: Here is what we used: white drawing paper (9" X 12"), tissue paper (cut in to small squares), Mod-Podge or other decoupage glue, foam brushes, scissors, pencil, black markers- thick, chalk pastels, variety of 9" X 12" construction paper in cool colors, black construction paper (12" X 15"), glue Encounter: Here is what we did: We first studied warm & cool colors and played a sorting game (pictured below).
We then decoupaged tissue paper to the white drawing paper. To decoupage the tissue papers on, use a foam brush to apply the Mod-Podge glue to the paper, add the tissue paper on top, and then cover the tissue with more glue. Continue adding glue until the paper is completely covered. We used gloss Mod-Podge, which leaves a nice shiny coat. Drawing the leaf. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Fall Popcorn Tree Craft for Preschoolers. 9.2K Flares9.2K Flares × As much as I’m sad to see summer come to an end, I really do love the crafting for fall with the hooligans. Fall leaves, red, juicy apples and all of the vibrant colours that autumn brings provide us with lots of things to explore and learn about. Today, we’re exploring the colours of fall, making an adorable, easy,fall popcorn tree craft.
Kids will love shaking up some colourful fall leaves to decorate their twig trees. How we made our fall trees with coloured popcorn: Today, we popped a bag of microwave popcorn (the buttery kind) for snack, and saved a few handfuls for our craft. We divided those handfuls into 3 piles and put them into zippy bags, along with a spoonful of Tempera Paint Powder. Then we went outside for a little shakey-shakey. I had previously used my glue gun to attach some small twigs to cardboard, so the Hooligans could get straight to work.
They got busy with their popcorn and glue, and check out the results! Get the 3-5 Playful Preschool e-Book! Fun Crafts Made With Autumn Leaves.

Over the past couple of weeks my neighbor’s leaves, just down the street, have have been changing colors but my leaves have stayed green as ever. Finally, the leaves on our trees have started to turn colors too and we took full advantage of that today… We started our day by reading the wonderful children’s book, “We’re going on a Leaf Hunt” by Steve Metzger… This book follows the traditional story line of “Going on a Bear Hunt” only the children in this simple to read book find different types of trees with different kinds of leaves as they hike through the forest… After reading our book, I had the children gather around our table to talk about the different colors of paper we had spread around the table and then explained to the children that as we go outside for our own leaf hunt, they need to see if they can find a leaf for each color on our table… And then, just like the children in the book did, we went for a leaf hunt in our own “forest.”… I also collected leaves along our walk.
