This beautiful photographic poster of the harvest moon is perfect for putting up on the whiteboard or the wall, to show children just what we mean by the full, orange moon with this name.
Harvest Moon Poster 1
The owl sillouetted against an orange harvest moon is a very effective use of a stencil, and a fun craft for the kids to try. Younger children will need help cutting out the fiddly owl template, or you can do it for them in advance.
Create a washed background with watery paint and then make your harvest moon stand out against it with this homemade "puffy paint" technique. The result is a lovely, textural piece of art!
