A few weeks ago we read Arnold's Apple Tree, and I had the kids tell me how to draw the trees from each season as we read the book. We've been discussing and learning about the four seasons since then. We did booklets, and now the big finale...painting! Yes, I got out the paint, and the kids did GREAT! We used Q-tips instead of paint brushes, and we were SUPPOSED to just do little dots. As you can see, some of us forgot and got carried away.
