Fall Leaf Print Craft

By | Activities | No Comments

This time of year we love to go on nature walks as a family. Our kids love to collect leaves, so we thought that we would make a craft with them this year that we could keep long after the leaves dry up.

This leaf print craft is a simple fall craft that is best suited to the older preschool and above set. The finished leaf craft looks great hanging up as a decoration for fall.

What you’ll need:

  • Fall leaves (that aren’t dried out)
  • Red, yellow, orange and brown paint
  • Paint brush
  • Construction paper

How to make your Fall Leaf Print Craft:

  • Collect a few fall leaves outside. Talk about the colors and what makes the leaves you find similar or different.
  • Paint the back of the leaf where the veins are.
  • Make a leaf print on some scrap paper first to remove some of the paint and then print onto your real paper.
  • Repeat with all the leaves you collected.

Inch Into Spring With This Adorable Caterpillar Craft

By | Activities | No Comments

How to make it: Trim a few sheets of colorful construction paper or double-sided cardstock into strips. Staple or glue the edges together as you help your kids form the chain. Accent the caterpillar with cute pom-pom feet, googly eyes, and a heart-shape felt-sticker mouth. Finish this cute little guy by punching two small holes in the head and threading a short chenille stem through each to create curly antennae.
