Fall fingerprint trees

Emeline is working with the letter T now. We made similar trees in the past but used real leaves instead of finger print leaves. I'm not sure why the girls love this so much but they do. They painted their backgrounds first. Then I painted their hands and forearms to about halfway with the dark brown paint for the trunk and limbs. Finally, we mixed up some fall colors and they fingerprinted away. The one above is Josie's.

Emeline's hurricane!!

Beautiful!! I love them. That must have been a fun activity!
hey, our butterflies have all hatched but one ( and that one will be hatching tomorrow probably!!) We all went outside and found more caterpillars today so we'll have more soon. What a fun experiment!
love to all
