Creating a window garden from kitchen scraps was one of my favorite things as a child and always popular with my kids and students. You'll find some great ideas and tips for this activity at The Tiny Funnel.
Use these lovely images at Bicocacolor as inspiration to make your own painted fall leaf mandalas. What I love about this kind of project is that there is no right or wrong way to do it and it works so well for kids of all ages. This is a great family art project for the weekend, enjoy!
