Fall Leaf Abstract Art for Kids


Ah, autumn! It’s sweater weather and the leaves are falling off of the trees. Now I’m not saying that mother nature hasn’t done a bang up job turning the leaves into eye-catching colors. But, recently I decided to paint a few leaves and make a Thanksgiving wreath. In the process I noticed that the paint spilling over the edges of the leaves turned into kind of interesting looking negative space prints.

Autumn art
 
When I pulled the painted leaf off of the paper (admittedly, I was only using the paper as a way to keep the artsy mess off of the table), the area under the leaf (i.e., negative space) was still blank. The area surrounding it was brightly-colored, leaving a leaf-shape behind. The more leaves that we painted, the more abstract the art became!

Try it with one leaf, two leaves or a whole handful. Before you get to the art-making, try a simple science activity and go for a nature walk. Bring a bag to collect the fallen leaves. As you take a look around, ask your child:

·        How do the leaves look different now that it’s not summer anymore?

·        Why do you think the leaves changed colors?

·        What colors do you see in the leaves?

·        Why do you think the leaves are falling off of the trees?

Grab a few different shapes and sizes of leaves to start the process!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Fall leaves

·        Tempera paint

·        A paintbrush

·        White paper

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Place the first leaf on the paper.

2.     Brush a coat of paint over the leaf. This isn’t a time for your child to be neat. She’ll need to paint off of the leaf in order to create the negative space print. Let her get messy and paint over and around the leaf.

3.     Lift the leaf off and put it to the side.
 

4.     Repeat the painting process with more leaves. Encourage your child to place them on different parts of the paper or in different directions. Use different colors of paint. Your child can use “fall” themed colors such as red, yellow, brown and orange or you can give her a rainbow of hues.

  24. The breed became very popular in the early 1900s, and in 1913 and 1914, https://oneshoppharmacy.comthey were among the 10 most popular entries in the Westminster Kennel Club Show. During World War I, however, the breed fell on hard times in the U.S. and England because they were poodle for saleclosely associated with Germany. Dachshund owners sometimes were called traitors and their dogs stoned. After
    World War I, some U.S. breedersdachshunds for sale imported some Dachshunds from Germany and the breed started to become popular once again. The breed faced a similar fate during World War II, but not nearly so severely as during World War I.
    In the 1950s, Dachshunds became one of the most popular family dogs in the U.S. again, a status they have enjoyed ever
    since. While Dachshunds mini dachshund puppy for salerarely are used as hunting dogs in the U.S. or Great Britain, in other parts of Europe, especially France, they still are considered hunting dogs. Today the Dachshund ranks sixth among the 155 breeds and varieties recognized by the AKC.Dachshund dogs love apartment life.mini dachshund puppies for sale Because of their small size, they don’t need a backyard, but they

  25. Dachshunds are bred and shown in two sizes: Standard and Miniature.https://www.cutespupsforsale.com/ Standard Dachshunds of all varieties (Smooth, Wirehair, and Longhair) usually weigh between 16 and 32 pounds. Miniature Dachshunds of all varieties weigh 11 pounds and under atteacup poodle for sale maturity. Dachshunds that weigh between 11 and 16 pounds are called Tweenies. While this isn't an official classification, Tweenies are not penalized in the show ring. Some people who breed exceptionally small Dachshunds advertise them as Toy Dachshunds, but this is purely a poodles for salemarketing term, not a recognized designation.The Dachshund is described as clever, lively, and courageous to the point of rashness. He's bred for perseverance, which is another way of saying that he can be stubborn. Dachshunds have a reputation for being dachshund puppies saleentertaining and fearless, but what they want most is to cuddle with their people. For many Dachshund people, this characteristic outweighs having to deal with the breed's insistence on having his own way. The Dachshund personality can also vary with coat type. Because the wirehaired Dachshunds have terrier in their background, they can be mischievous troublemakers. Longhairs are calm and quiet, and Smooths havedachshund for sale a personality that lies somewhere in between. Some Mini Dachshunds can be nervous or shy, but this isn't correct for the breed. Avoid puppies that show these characteristics.Like every dog, Dachshunds need early socialization-exposure to many different people, dachshund puppies for sale near mesights, sounds, and experiences-when they're young. Socialization helps ensure that your Dachshund puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog. Enrolling him in a puppy kindergarten class is a great start. Inviting visitors over regularly, and taking him to busy parks, stores that allow dogs, and on leisurely strolls to meet neighbors will also help him polish his social skills.

  26. The dachshund was bred in Germany hundreds of years ago to hunt badgers.https://www.poodlespring.com/ "Dach" means badger and "hund" means dog. The three varieties of dachshund, smooth-,Dachshund puppies for sale wire-,and long-coated, originated at different times. The smooth was the first and arose from a mixture of a miniature French pointer and a pinscher. The breed also comes in two sizes: standard and miniature, with the standard the original size.
    The dachshund has short, strong legs that enable the dog to dig out prey and go inside burrows. Larger versions of the breed were used to chase deer or fox. Smaller dachshunds Dachshund puppy for salewere bred for hunting hares and ferrets.
    The breed is still used for hunting, primarily in Europe, but in North America this dog is usually a family pet. In fact, it is one of the most popular AKC breeds.
    Miniatures are not a separate AKC classification but compete in a class division for "11 pounds and under at 12 months of age and older." Weight of the standard size is usually between 16 and 32 pounds. There is no height standard for the dachshund but they are usually under nine indachshunds puppies for saleches in height.All three types are known for their long backs and short muscular legs, which explains the unflattering nicknames "sausage hound" or "hot dog." They also have a long muzzle, long and droopy ears, and a tail carried in line with the back.
    The dachshund's coat may be shades of red, black, chocolate, white or gray. Some have tan markings or are spotted or dappled. Dachshunds live about 12 to 15 years.toy poodle for saleespite their size, dachshunds are known for their courageous nature and will take on animals much larger than themselves. Some may be aggressive toward strangers and other dogs.
    As family dogs, dachshunds are loyal companions and good watchdogs. They are good with children if treated well. They can be slightly difficult to train.
    Some dachshund fanciers say there are personality differences among the different varieties of the breed. For instance, the long-coat dachshund is reportedly calmerteacup poodles for sale than the smooth-coat variety, and the wire-coat dachshund is more outgoing and clown-like.Dachshunds were bred as hunters so it is no surprise that many of them like to dig. Some are also barkers, and, in one survey, dachshunds ranked high for destructiveness.
