Nature crafting (with leaves)

We heart nature crafting.
The supplies are free and everywhere!
 Plus you get out of the house for a little pre craft adventure to gather them up.
What's not to love about that. 

Our favorite "nature" craft supply is leaves.
Sometimes we collect fallen ones but since we live in Orange County where you can't quite tell if it really is fall or still summer we resorted to picking some live ones off a bush.

 For this project I drew a little turkey, let the kids color it in and then we glued the leaves to the back of the turkey to look like tails feathers. 

Easy peasy. 

This was Wesley's masterpiece. 
I asked him why he scribbled the turkey out with black crayon.
His response...
"Mom, the turkey is hiding under a rock." 
Of course it is. 

What are some easy craft projects you do with your kids.

Hi Kirstin,
here is my autumn leaf craft idea i ve just remembered. First collect some autumn leaves (or bush leaves) with te chilidren. Them draw a tree on a piece of paper..just tree trunk and bare branches and let the kids glue the leave on the tree..... or on the ground for the already fallen leaves , or in teh air for the ones in the middle of falling...anyhow they like. Super easy and fun!!

Thanks Monika! You are so sweet :) I'm so glad you came out of "secret reader" status! And I love your fall leaf idea. I'll definitely be doing that with the kiddos soon.
