Fall Into Nature
And those leaves falling on the ground are wonderful for walking in to hear that lovely crunching sound.
And children are willing helpers to rake the leaves into piles.
Of course, throwing them is much more fun.
But best of all, we get to use the leaves for crafts. Last year I shared our leaf people craft and our wreathes along with some links to some fun fall ideas. This year we made some Fall Leaf Frames with the preschool class at co-op.
I thought Tabitha and Amelia would like to make one as well. So, they are going to help me demonstrate how to make this simple craft.
I used my paper cutter to cut a one inch frame out of two pieces of construction paper for each picture. And I cut 2 pieces of clear contact paper to fit just a bit over the inside of the frame.
I laid one piece of the contact paper sticky side up and put one frame on top.
Then they laid on their leaves.
Then I covered it with the other piece of contact paper.
Then the girls put glue on the frame so we could cover it with the other frame.
