This project was TONS of fun … and pretty simple for the kids to create TRULY beautiful art. We used small canvas in which I drew a leaf with pencil:
I then took gel glue and traced over the pencil lines. I would have loved for Henry (age 5) to do this part himself (Honor, at 2 years of age, is still a bit young for that) … but he was NOT interested in crafting that day.
It was amazing to watch how much the projects changed throughout the process. I wish I would have taken more photos, but we were too busy creating! We will definitely be doing similar projects in the future … maybe even re-doing this one each November!
Got this idea from Pink and Green Mama too. See it here.
