Leaf Painting.

Hey, remember that leaf hunt that didn't entertain my kids for more than 3 minutes?  Well, add some paint to the formula and my kids are busy for an hour.  Pure bliss.  They painted each leaf and pressed them on paper to make leaf prints.  Some how, wine corks were added to the mix to make a colorful fall tree.  There was some hand painting along the way.  And then we ended the activity with pressing a leaf between two sheets of paper and rubbing a crayon over it to see the outline of the leaf and its stem.  (I sat this one out.  I drank wine so each of my kids had a wine cork for stamping).
