Leaf Art

Well, as you know, I’m not Jean… but I am trying to become a more art-loving parent!  So, when we went to the library and the story time activity was to go outside and collect leaves, I decided to bring them home and do something with them!!  I made the poster, then gave her the bag of leaves and a sheet of contact paper to stick them on.  She loved putting them on the sticky paper, and then was so excited to see her leaves on her poster!  We also put the leaves under some copy paper and did rubbings of them.  It was a super fun art time!

Here’s a view of our art wall, which I’m really striving to keep new art rotating through more regularly!  Becca LOVES seeing her art displayed on the wall, and is so proud when we hang up new things!  I need to come up with a really good way to keep the stuff we take down off of the wall…

This is the text “picture” that anchors the wall.  Found this quote and fell in love with it.  We just very simply attached a cable to the wall behind the picture, and anchored it at both ends with nails.  Then I can clip art of various sizes easily.
