Leaves are falling- Craft

We had another fun craft today at the YMCA.  First I read a story, "The Leaves are Falling One by One."    The story is actually sung to the tune of "The Ants go Marching."  Before I read the story to the group I asked the kids what season we were in then we walked to the window and looked for at the colors that the leaves had changed.  

After the story they got to create their own tree with leaves falling off.  Very simple and easy steps.

1. Trace hands (it is your tree)
2. Color tree and add any other details such as a sun, grass, or flowers.
3. Use an ink pad and fingers to add leaves on the tree's or falling off the tree. 

Here is Selah's tree...yes she traced it on her own and it appears as if she only has 4 fingers but I promise she does have all 5. :)

Neat fall project! Little Bit and I went outside yesterday to investigate some of the fall happenings around here. I hope to take him to a pumpkin patch or fruit market this weekend to see some pumpkins and taste apple cider for the first time. Isn't fall a glorious time? I am ever so thankful for it.
Cute idea!! I love fall.

I love this craft! Perfect for little ones! :) We're in a Fall crafting mood over here too. I would love it if you would stop by my blog to say hi! We made some pumpkin play dough this week that we're really proud of! I'm also featuring a recipe for pumpkin pancakes today! I hope you're having an awesome day!

cute and great idea using the stamp pad - that would work well for groups of kids versus paint if it's just a few!

Thanks for linking to the Sunday Showcase & hope to see you again this week!

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
