Fall Leaves Activity

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."
