Open Ended Art--orange and black

This week's Open Ended Art theme over at Mommies Wise Little Bookworms was: orange and black.
I began by making our own little stamps, using wooden spools and foamie shapes.
I just glued the shapes onto the spools using my new favorite tool, Glue Dots.
Ta da!! Autumn stamps to use with orange paint.
Luke stamping a bat.

Luke can't paint unless he adds a personal "fingerpaint" touch.
By-Luke
Gracie made a nice leaf, pumpkin border to decorate her picture of "5 little pumpkins".
Kimberly working hard.
Next week's Open ended Art is: Black and White:Glitter, Chalk, Paint anything goes.

Great craft, and I just learned something I wanted to know long time to go - how to glue something quickly and without a lot of mess.

Thanks for the great idea! We will be doing Pumpkins in our Tot School next week. I just might have to borrow this idea. My little guy loves to paint.
