Collect some of the Fallen leaves from around your home with your kids to make these awesome leaf prints!
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus
Each time Fall comes around I’m more and more amazed by the beautiful vibrant colors of the changing leaves. This year, the leaves seemed like they took a little while to change. Yet all of a sudden, everything turned orange, yellow, red and even more vibrant than last year’s. Ah, it’s the most beautiful scenery! I can’t seem to take enough photos since every scene looks so different and beautiful!
As the kids and I love to do, we’ve collected leaves several times to take home! Catch our leaf collecting post here! We love to use some of these collected leaves to make a craft. One of such crafts is leaf rubbing. It’s where you color over the leaves on a sheet of paper to get the print of the exact leaf. It’s fun but at times it could also be a little frustrating for smaller kids. They may need an extra hand!
