More Fall Fun

Caroline and I made these fall-colored suncatchers today. We used coffee filters and Do-a-Dots - red, orange, yellow, and Caroline wanted to use a little purple too. :) She doesn't stick with art projects for too long, so I did a lot of the dotting myself. She did the one in the center and on the left. I filled in the space near the edges.

After dotting, you spray the whole thing with water to make the colors run a bit. Then, once dry, hang them in a sunny window. Just a simple way to let Caroline take part in the fall decorations around the house.
One other simple way to get into the fall spirit: using a pumpkin cookie cutter on biscuits. We eat biscuits fairly often here, and Caroline loves to make some of the biscuits into shapes using cookie cutters.

We've made those coffee filter thingies before! They are great for this age. :) But even Maria likes to do them.
