Exploring Fall colors with gourds and paint cards! Take a walk outside or visit a farm. This is the perfect time of year for exploring Fall colors. Beautiful jewel tones are abundant in Fall. We picked up a handful of paint cards to check out new colors. These Fall colors go way beyond your primary and secondary colors. Make color samples to take with you on your Fall adventures this season.
Exploring Fall Colors With Gourds
Exploring Preschool Fall Colors With Gourds
One of the best parts of exploring fall colors this week was actually getting out and exploring! We visited a local farm, greenhouse, and market that sells all the wonderful bounty of fall including gourds, mums, Indian corn, corn stalks, pumpkins and of course cider donuts!
We spent a whole morning picking out our items together, taking photos and being together outside in awesome, cool fall weather. Take a look at our bounty!
I thought it might be fun exploring fall colors with paint chip cards. These are a wonderful resource for playing with colors although we have only used the standard colors for color sorting and scissor skills.
Use a hole punch to make a hole in each color.
After bringing all our goodies home, we set out exploring fall colors! He was also very curious about the color names on the cards which were a little odd. However, it was a great way to talk about shades of our favorite, common colors. He enjoyed matching the cards to the gourds!
One of the other fun ways we went about exploring Fall colors was to take pictures of what we saw on our little field trip. I let him take my iPhone and told him to take pictures of neat or colorful things.
With a little guidance, he caught some pretty colors of mums, pumpkins, corn, and warty pumpkins. We sat down an scrolled through them as well!
