While the leaves are falling, we love this fall watercolor art. It’s so simple, and yet the results are beautiful. Using pipettes, as we have in other art activities, provides an additional fine motor lesson as well.

What you will need:
That’s it! Just 3 things.
- Pour the liquid watercolors into containers and add some water to dilute.
- Add pipettes to the container of watercolors.
- Invite children to squeeze the watercolors from the container and release onto the tissue paper leaves. (Note: this can take awhile for a child to grasp. Model how it’s done a few times, and guide your child through the process. Once your child gets it, you will see a big smile!)
- A few different colors on each leaf look beautiful! The tissue paper allows them to bleed together.
- Let them dry and display!
