I was super excited to do this project as our first with some of the kids in our new neighborhood. Including us, there are now 8 kids, under 9 years old, living in adjacent houses. This opportunity of having playmates so close is brand new to us … and we love it!
And, making the leaf people was a huge it! The neighborhood is filled with large Hickory, Maple, & Oak trees … so the kids were able to gather the supplies from the backyard. I had each of them collect one leaf, sticks, acorns, and hickory nuts. We brought them inside and I used my glue gun to apply the natural elements to the toilet paper roll body … fall family fun!
This is where I got this idea … leaf-people-finger-puppets
