Last week I was in a journey to find some fall crafts and ideas. Now I have an entire folder on my phone, I wonder how long will it take to do all the arts and crafts that I saved. 🙄
Meanwhile, here's what we did already a few days ago.
This summer (and spring too) our Art work was minimal and truly I missed it.
Putting the vibrant colors on white paper is something I do to relax and really brings me in good mood.
My brain releases all those happy hormones. 😆
These are meant to be Fall Trees 🍂🍁
They didnt turned exactly as they should have, but I was happy with the result.
At first, I thought they look like flowers and maybe they do 😆. But heyy! They're trees.
I found this technique easy to try it with kids. Its great for dexterity and fine motor skills development. They need to make all the autumn colored circles around trunks.
Caleb did the circles on top of the trunk, like flowers 🤭 but I let him. I didnt said its wrong because I dont think it was necessary. With time, he will understand.
Rounded colorful fall trees
Autumn Leaves Painting
I thought this technique was easy to try it as well, also use some real fall leaves.
They just started to fall down. Slowly, but they started to get dry and dance in their way down. 🍁🍂
Nothing fancy with this method. The kids should be excited to get a leaf outline.
In fact, the techique says to remove the leaf in the end, put Caleb didnt want that 😆, so we left it there. Let it be! 🍁🍁
We started by fixing the leaves on paper. Then we used the brush to apply fall water colors and then tried to give it a smooth texture and aspect. Didnt get much because Caleb was already bored.
In the end, I thought why continue with Arts and Painting? Caleb didnt look too excited, and I was intrigued because he used to love it. Painting with acrylics was his thing back in the days, but maybe I need to accept that he grew older and his passions are different.
Anyways, after re-reading about painting and art benefits in kids, I will definitely go forwards with it and make other art works. If not for my kid,then for me 🤣🤣
Thanks guys for reading and I hope you can use our ideas for autumn arts this year.
❓️❔️ Do you have any plans for this autumn season? Some crafts, paintings or others similar?
