Make a lovely Autumn leaf crown from leaves collected on a walk! A fun art and craft activity for fall.
We were at the park yesterday and collected some gorgeous fallen leaves from “the orange tree” as C described it.
I gave C a strip of white card and she coloured it with some Autumnal colours.
Then she applied lots of glue using a glue stick along its length.
And carefully stuck some leaves all the way along it.
Then, when it was dry, I measured it to fit her head and stapled it together. Easy!
She said “I’m the Queen of the park!”
This activity goes really well with our 5 a day book choice of Red Leaf Yellow Leaf!
