Paint 'smooshing' plus collaging with natural found fall items. What could be better?! We absolutely love this delightful autumn sensory art project we found over at Happy Hooligans and know your little explorers/crafters will have a blast with it!

Jackie combined two different crafts to create the final project. First, she invited her kiddos to experiment with no-mess finger painting, adding drops of fall colored paint to a piece of craft paper, covering it with wax paper, and inviting her little crafters to smush the paint around into fun patterns. Left to dry, Jackie then took her kids on a scavenger hunt outside to find leaves, berries, flowers, and other found items from around the house/school yard. Added to the dried paint print with craft glue, the final collage of three-dimensional found objects is super colorful and perfect for fall!
