The autumn wind has been doing a very thorough job of blowing away all the gorgeous leaves from the trees on my street, but my 4 yr old son Connor & I found a way to keep the vibrant fall colors around a bit longer. Using simple clip art images from the internet, I traced the shapes on to colored paper & he made them pretty! When we had all we wanted, I cut them out & he helped me punch holes and string them together.
When we were finished, I hung the garland up in his window. We make a great team & I love the unique, organic appearance of each leaf. If you’re looking for a way to spend some quality time with your little ones – whether you have just a few minutes, or a whole afternoon – you might want to give this a try. Happy Fall Crafting!
