After a little fun with fall leaves on the flannel board, we explored a little fall leaf egg carton printing..

The children started by drawing their own fall tree branches on a sheet of paper…

Then they dipped the bottom of a cut-up egg carton container into some red, yellow, or orange paint…

Next, they pressed the egg cartons on the paper to make fall leaf prints…

Each child chose a little different approach to their painting with the egg carton…

Some of the children preferred to go up and down with the egg carton and others chose to rub the egg cartons around on their paper…

Although we had paint on the bottom of the egg cartons when we finished, I still saved the egg cartons to use again for another day…
