Chalkboard and Autumn Admiration

Looking up at this:

and this:

of course, it was only a matter of time before there was a tree in our house decked out in colored leaves of its own:

This chalkboard hangs in our kitchen and sometimes I’ll write out our dinner menu or a fancy birthday greeting but most often we’re using it for school. Claire loves to draw on it while standing on a kitchen chair and most recently we created this cool tree using coffee filters and watercolors. Forget the brush on the coffee filters, eye droppers are the way to go! The wrong sized coffee filters gathering dust in your cabinets are best to use, I’m not that smart though.

Claire really wanted to tape up this interesting branch with berries she found in the woods so we added that too. I’ll have to bring out the colored chalk and we’ll add some brown and grey to the trunk. I do think Claire’s “burls” are a nice touch.
