I was reading Confessions of a Homeschooler, one of my favorites, this week and thought this "leaf animal" activity was cute. So I decided to do it when our friends came for a visit.
We found lots of cool stuff!
"Dash" made a T-Rex.
"Sissy" and I made a giraffe. (Like it, Mimi?)
Noah made two dinosaurs.
I helped Saylor with her cat (which could arguably be a wolf or a fox...but don't mention that to her).
And Gabriel and I attempted an octopus.
It was a little messy, but not hard to clean up.
Tip: Leaves are easier to glue if they're soft and not yet "crispy."
