Yesterday was silly sock day at B's soccer practice. We decided to decorate B's socks with felt faces and silk leaf fairies. He won some tie dyed socks for his creativity. The cold, rainy weather has kept us inside and we've been doing more fall crafts. We made these trees with a water color background and then made the trees by blowing the paint around.
We used some square and triangle paper cut-outs for the leaves.
J and B also finished up their leaf salt dough decorations.
J remembered making houses out of paper in second grade and wanted to try this out again.
Here's a happy little cat decorated by B.
Lastly, we strung up some peanuts for the squirrels.
