Leaf Printing

Today was one of those beautiful, sunny days, where the air felt just right- a day you could not pass up enjoying outside! The kids played outside while Paul did some gardening in the backyard. Lucy kept running inside with bunches of flowers and grasses to put in vases. I kept searching cupboards frantically looking for jars and vases to keep up with her newly discovered decorations for the house. 
Eventually Lucy came inside for a break. It had been a while since we had done our art journals (care of a wonderful blog Tinkerlab ) so we set up an area to get creative! We had been wanting to do some leaf printing, and this seemed like the perfect time! We gathered some of the materials she had brought in and some paints to get started. 
I helped Lucy set up a painting area.

And she dove right in!

Look at that concentration!

It was fun experimenting with different leaves and colors. Lucy also wanted to try printing with the flowers and grasses. It was messy, but so fun!

  1. What a beautiful project Chelsea! You do such a great job following Lucy's lead. I especially love seeing the jars of flowers behind her. It's hard to believe that Fall is just around the corner.
