Fall Leaves

We all know that when you mix red and yellow you get orange, but do your kids? This is a great way for kids to experiment with mixing colors, while learning about the changing colors in nature they're seeing outside.

Trace around real leaves or download my leaf template here. Provide red, yellow, and green paint (or apply a few dabs to the paper if you're working with younger kids), and let them mix and paint to their heart's content. 

Once the paint is dry, cut the leaves out and hang them around the house as fun fall decorations!
