Alttag here

1. Help your child gather and bundle a small handful of pine needles and tie them together at one end with dental floss, or string. These will be used, as they were in earlier times, as painting brushes.

2. Dip the pine needle brush into a bowl with red, yellow and orange paint (fall colors) and paint with the brush on a large sheet of construction paper.

3. Hang the pine needle brushes along with the art work, to show others how the pictures were created.
