Between yesterday and today Nathan and I made a Fall tree. I drew a tree to the best of my ability (I am NOT an artist). Then used my all cookie cutters to draw leaves, acorns, and turkeys.
So today when he got up from his nap I let him use markers to color on the tree. I gave him red, yellow, and orange.
He was very excited to color. I talk a lot about how we only color on paper. I do this in hopes that he will not color on my walls. :) So far so good!! He has colored the paper and his hands.
We will continue to color on our tree through fall. As he gets older I hope to turn it into a thankful tree where we write what we are thankful for on the leaves.
