Fall Tree Reflection
This project was done by my creative 2nd graders! We did the soft pastel trees first, then the watercolor sky, and then the tempera paint grass. For the last step, my favorite step, we used Q-tips to add tempera paint leaves to the trees. I had some gold paint left over from another project that gave the leaves quite the finishing touch! After each step, you need to fold the paper over and press in order to get the reflection. It is very much a step-by-step process but the results were beautiful!
