Seeing the full spectrum of leaves around us sparked an idea to see if the kids and I could create a color wheel with leaves. We didn't find find any blues, but got real close to purple! It was a great exercise in seeing colors and how they relate. Our oranges turned brown as you can see, and we didn't find a good yellow-green to bridge that gap. But it was a lot of fun seeing how many colors God puts around us this time of year! The boys really got into this; they were climbing our fence to snatch the bright orange leaves off the neighbor's tree!
If you try this, press the leaves first so the paper doesn't wrinkle as they dry. We used a glue stick to affix them to heavy paper.
After the color wheel, we decided we needed to make a turkey.
