Our Fall Activity

This was a nice activity that took us quite a few steps to complete!  It was nice because it kept us occupied for a nice chunk of time.

The activity was initially inspired by elsiemarley.com

We started out by hunting for treasure leaves around the neighborhood.  The girls both loved this!

After we got back home, we went through our leaves to find the best ones.

We then cleaned them off and I put the leaves that we wanted to hang for art through the laminating machine.

Our Fall Activity
Maisy got out some origami paper and wanted to include that in the activity, so I traced a few leaves and cut them out and laminated them along with our real leaves.  I then cut out all the laminated leaves and the girls chose which fall leaves they wanted in their rooms.  I then armed them with tape and let them decorate how they wished.

Maren prefered to line them up nicely.

Maisy prefered to make hers into a full blown tree using the rest of her art work as the trunk.  (She got a little into it!)

And that was a nice introduction to fall!
