Fall Window Tree

Since we are sick here in the Foster residence, I’ve been coming up with all sorts activities to try to keep us busy and active without leaving the house.  I’m so glad that I found this blog from Frugal Family Fun Blog.   This took up and entire morning!  We painted coffee filters, cut out the tree, hung the tree, dug up carrots from the garden while waiting for the coffee filters to dry, cut out leaves, and hung those on the tree. Overall, a very fun project that the whole neighborhood can see since its on our front porch screen door.
Also, we learned that coffee filters are fun for all sorts of things. They make great boats for little animals, make pie crusts for mixing all sorts of “food” into, and are just fun to try to separate for fine motor skill practice. Thank goodness they are cheap!

    We can see it when we drive by! It looks pretty neat I must say.

    Ahh, those coffee filters they’re not going to be re-used when I stay over are they?
