I love the smells of fall! Pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and nutmeg!
Since S really enjoys painting, I decided to add spices to her paints to make them scented just like fall. This makes for a fun sensory experience. We used just regular tempura washable paints and dumped in enough spices to be able to smell them.
In the orange paint I added pumpkin pie spice, to the yellow paint I added nutmeg and to the brown paint I added cinnamon.
S enjoyed smelling the different paints….they smelled really good!
S painted like she normally does. However, I did notice that the spice pieces were visible on the paper. I think it looks kind of cool because it adds a different dimension to the painting.
What is your favorite way to paint in the fall?
