Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf

The leaves are JUST starting to change around here…..have I mentioned that I LOVE fall :-) We read “Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf” by Lois Ehlert and then we made this:

We used large construction paper and ripped pieces of brown to make the trunk. Then we colored a coffee filter with food coloring (we did this a few days in advance).

We used the coffee filter to tear colored “leaves” and out on our tree :-)
