Book Inspiration :: Leaf Art

Thanks to a recent trip to the library, Grace's book bag is brimming with fall themed books. After reading the book, "Fall Leaves Fall" written by Zoe Hall and illustrated by Shari Halpern, Grace was inspired to create leaf art.

We decided that a park would be the best place to collect leaves in a variety of shapes and sizes for our project. So this morning we headed to a local park in search of leaves, among other treasures such as acorns, pine cones, and moss. Once all the items were collected Grace chose the "perfect" picnic table, then quickly got to work on her creation - an ocean scene. The little leaves were the fish, the big leaf was the shark and the moss was the coral reef, quite cleaver indeed.

We had a wonderful time creating leaf art together (yes, I made a picture too) in the great outdoors!
