Fall art project

Fall is here and we have a new craft this week!  Fall leaves! It is such a fun activity and your children love it!  The leaves come out so beautiful and are translucent when you hang them in the window. I thought that I would share the steps with you in case you would like to do it at home.   All you need are coffee filters, markers and water.

The beautiful fall view through our window!
Trace leaf shapes on coffee filters.  The children color in the "leaves" with fall marker colors (red, orange, yellow, brown and green)
                         
Take a spray bottle and get the whole "leaf" wet.  Colors run together!  Let them dry, cut them out, hang and enjoy!
