Noah's new found love of art is going strong and I'm still loving it too! A couple of weeks ago, we made trees! I found the original idea at Artful Parent and I just adapted it a little bit so that it would work better for Noah's skill level.
Instead of having Noah make the tree himself with masking tape, I made the tree while Noah was sleeping using brown ribbon that I ran through my Xyron to make it sticky. I just stuck it down on cream colored cardstock.
Then when Noah was ready, I gave him the closest colors we had to "fall colors" of his beloved paint markers. (They are still his favorite - and mine too!) He used the paint markers to make "dots" for the leaves. He had a great time doing it and they turned out really cool. I even framed one and put it up with my fall decor which he just thought was the coolest thing ever!
Here's a few pics of Noah making his trees......
Getting ready to paint!
Look at that smile!
