All things fun for fall!

All things fun for fall!

Hi friends!

It's been a while since I posted - things have been so busy with school starting for both myself and my son.  Even with the hustle and bustle we have still managed to make some time for some fun fall activities.  I wanted to share some with you in today's blog! 

The other day we went on a leaf hunt.  The leaves have just begun to start to turn their beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows in our neighborhood, and it was such a beautiful day, we had to take advantage of it. I decided to create something to help us collect and hold all our leaves.  I took a square piece of cardboard, drew a basic tree shape on it, and then poked holes through it all throughout the branches.  Then when we took our walk and collected leaves, we simply pushed the stems through the holes, and woila!  We have the perfect fall tree "leaf collector!"

Take a look at the video below to see the project in action. 

Fall is also a perfect time for leaf rubbings!  A while back Miriam from @cardboardschoolhouse did a beautiful IG story of how she used our Effortless Art Crayons for a leaf rubbing activity with her children.  Check out her posts HERE.  We had to share it with you all and hopefully inspire you to go out on a leaf hunt and bring them back so you can create your own leaf rubbings. 

Send us your pictures of your own leaf rubbing project and you can be featured in our social media pages.  Happy leaf hunting! 

Till next time,
