Fall Month: Fall Fingerprint Tree


Isaiah still talks about our bluebonnet painting. So, I decided that another fingerprint painting was in order for Fall Month.


I quickly prepped the paper the night before, by painting a simple tree trunk and branches. Then the next morning, we broke out the fall colored paints to make our fingerprint leaves.


It was a great opportunity to learn about warm colors vs. cool colors. (I know, I know, he's only two. But you you'd be amazed at the things he absorbs these days. It's crazy.)


We even spent some time "researching" on the computer together, looking at fall leaves all over the nation.

Grandma and Grandpa B are in Vermont right now, looking at those very leaves. So Isaiah was particularly interested in scenes from that state.


And after all of that research, it was time to get to work. I let Isaiah take the lead (since it was his tree, afterall). He wanted to put leaves on the tree AND on the ground. So that we did.

We had a great time painting together. Beautiful day, beautiful weather, beautiful moments. I couldn't love Fall any more.

Oh, and my favorite moment? Isaiah admiring his work and exclaiming..."Look what we did, Mommy! Look what we did!"

Love his heart.
