Nature’s Crayons/Fall into Spring

April 15, 2011

Colors are now appearing in flowers, buds and leaves. Get a piece of white paper, lay it on the driveway, sidewalk or another hard surface. Take a flower petal, a leaf, some dirt, a small flower that has fallen from a tree, a dandelion, an old berry and rub on the paper.

Nature’s crayons!


Fall can also happen during Spring. Not the season, but the act of things falling from trees. See for yourself: place a tarp, an upside-down, opened umbrella, pots/pans, cookie sheets, blanket/sheet, big pieces of white paper under some trees and see what happens.
