For week 4 (this week), we read books with a fall leaves theme.

T loved this finger-painting activity...because he didn't have to get his hands in the paint! (--a sensory issue for him, related to Down syndrome)
You can see how he "gets into it" more and more as the activity progresses!I found this terrific idea for no mess finger-painting at Sandy's site, Moments of Mommyhood.
Photos of the fall leaves we made with T's artwork are forthcoming. :)
Update - Monday, November 14, 2011:
Here are T's fall leaves...hanging in our kitchen window. ~Fall beauty at its best!
