My kids are home for fall break and it is time to do some arts with them! We ran across this idea on Make and Takes and got pretty excited. We had all the supplies, every child could do it - perfect for a gray fall day.
The oldest two cut their own houses out with some guidance. G. decided to go three story. Then, we colored in the details.
Maybe we should also include painting fingernails this fall break?
Use water colors and paint right over the color crayon. The crayon pops!
Yes, we totally listened to Halloween Party on pandora while we worked ( and yes, despite my sister's opinion - we like Jack Johnson)
We glued a piece of construction paper to the back for stability and added details. M. would tell me what she wanted and I cut them out - pumpkins, cats, moons.
This was REALLY fun - totally recommend it if you are looking for some ways to fill up your day! Today we are decorating graham cracker haunted houses and then we've got one more craft for Friday!
