Our Fall Tree

Today we started creating a fall tree for the wall. First we glued torn up brown paper to a trunk. The other group colored the top of the tree with crayons (they got to scribble!)

After this stage we switched groups and the trunk got painted with brushes and brown paint. The top was painted with orange, green and yellow.

By the end we decided it would just be easier to use our hands!

The large motions we were doing with our arms really helped work on some of those large muscles. With all this rain we have been needing an outlet.

This project will continue Thursday. Although hopefully we will also get some outside time!

The picture of the dirty sink: Almost all the kids wanted to know why the water was brown... So I answered "why do you think the water is brown?"  They had great answers!
