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!
