Coffee Filter Autumn Leaves

Jack made beautiful coffee filter autumn leaves yesterday. Jack used red, yellow and orange markers and marker dots to color coffee filters. Once he was finished coloring, Jack placed the filters on our driveway and sprayed them with water until the colors blended together. Once the filters dried I cut out maple leaf shapes. We will be making a leaf garland with the leaves to decorate our home for Thanksgiving. I'll be sure to post pictures of the finished garland.

My little leaf maker, Jack,

I love seeing you so hard at work, Mr. Handsome (you are looking so much like a 3 year old these days!!). So sweet and so cute.

What a great idea to place those stones on the filters so the wind wouldn't blow them away. Great thinking, Jack. I'm thinking that you loved the water spraying part! We cannot wait to see your leaf garland at Thanksgiving. Tell us all about it.

I Love You more than all the leaves in the world,

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
