Blow like the Wind

Recently, we found a leaf shaped hole punch and have been excited about using it. 
Today we finally got around to making some Fall trees with colorful foliage. 
Little Mister really enjoyed our new 'toy' and made ever so many leaves!
We then, painted his arm (about half way up to his elbow) with brown paint. 
We stamped 3 different trees, of varying heights, on the card stock. 
I then let Little Mister use a glue stick and add some leaves to our trees.
As you can see, we had a pile of leaves left over, so I made an impromptu graph and let him place the colored leaves in their correct places. Quick and easy math lesson!
However, this only lasted for a few minutes before he discovered the real fun of the day .... wind! 
Wind moves leaves!

 This turned out to be so much fun. We "raked" leaves off the floor and did this over and over and over again! I thought he was going to hyper-ventilate. 
Oh the belly laughs!
