Over the fall, my daughter and I had a blast making autumn trees. We painted and experimented with a few different methods, but our favorite was this lovely fall tree painted with bundled Q-tips.
We are deep into the fall now and the cold weather is here. The leaves are falling and some of the trees are bare now. I love the fall trees, but I also love the haunting beauty that comes with a bare tree, especially against the night sky.

We wanted to paint some night skies, but thought that bleeding tissue paper might be perfect for a our haunting scene.
Happy Easter! I hope everyone enjoys their days with their families.
Yesterday was the first day that I felt like it was actually spring. The sun was out & Mai and I ventured out doors to take a walk. The wind was strong, but we were enjoying the fresh air & sun shine. The green is starting to peek out from behind the melting snow in our yard. The warm weather is finally on its way & we couldn’t be happier.
After our walk it was craft time. To celebrate our change of season, we made a craft inspired by the four seasons.
Hand Print Seasons
We painted Mai’s hand & arm in brown & stamped 4 separate sheets of paper.
Let the hands prints dry.
Paint in branches around the hands for the winter, spring & fall. Draw in other pictures that represent the season.
Have your child imprint the winter sheet with white finger prints for snow & red, yellow & orange finger prints for falling leaves. Use green paint for the summer tree’s leaves & blue for spring rain. Let dry & frame your sweet little finger prints to enjoy the best of all the seasons all year round.
