Fall Leaves using Black Glue
- Black paint
- White glue in a glue bottle
- Paper (I used copy paper)
- Watercolors and brush
- Construction paper
To make your black glue, just squirt some black paint into your glue bottle. I wanted to be sure to have a dark black color so I emptied out most of the white glue from the bottle until there was only 1/4 left. Then I added some squirts of black paint and shook it up.
I added some veins.
These took forever to dry. I made them while the kids were napping, thinking we could use them when they woke up. Nope. It took a day for the black glue to dry. So plan accordingly.
When the glue had dried, I talked to girls about Fall leaves and the different colors they can be. Of course this went in one ear and out the other. The kids used the watercolors to paint the leaves whatever colors they wanted.
