Tree painting

2015 Paintathon: Painting with fall colours - tree art by Welcome to Mommyhood #artforkids, #paintingforkids, #paintathon

Today I am sharing my second post for the 2015 Paintathon! With the seasons getting ready to change, and fall colours just starting to make their appearance on the leaves here, I wanted to set up a fun invitation to explore warm colours in our painting. 

I created a simple tree printable for Y to explore. I also gathered a few additional supplies for him to explore - leaves, a sponge, and paint. We kept it very basic, but effective.

Aside from painting, this was an extremely fun project to use to learn about colour mixing. I only had yellow and red paint, which we mixed. I love the result on the paper - the different shades of colours that totally mystified Y!
