Leaves

Wyatt loves leaves! He loves watching them fall, he loves chasing them, he is enjoying this season just as much as the next person! I have seen a few crafts here and there (Who am I kidding, pretty much only on Pinterest-ha!) but I recently saw one at my parents house that I loved! I began thinking of a way to put my own spin on it and this is what we ended up with...



We walked around our yard and I asked Wyatt to pick out some of his very favorite leaves. He thought it was really cool to be able to bring so many inside. After we had picked out 5-6 different leaves with different shapes and sizes we sat down to begin painting.



I gave him 3 fall colors, red, green, and yellow. Typical boy-we ended up with brown within a minute. (Yes, this OCD mama took a step back and let him do it his way. After all it is his art right?!?!?) We painted the backs of all the leaves together and...

Ta-Da.....a painting using leaves from our very own yard. He thought it was the coolest thing! Of course this was a great time to talk about how great our God is and all the things he has made for us! We did all this while enjoying a little Christmas music in the background. *LOVE*
