Falling Leaves

I watched my daughter cutting different shapes out of construction paper. She had several colors, and a story to go with each piece of paper. When she was done, I had to sweep up little bits of paper from all over the room. The domestic chore turned into a collage of fall color, and I found an excellent fall project for the cost of a package that can be purchased at many so-called "dollar stores" .

This project is rated VERY EASY to do.

What You Need

  • Fallen leaves (we used white oak and sugar maple)
  • Pen or marker
  • Construction paper in assorted colors (red, orange, yellow, brown, green)
  • Scissors
  • Tape

How To Make It
The next time she wanted to cut, we decided to use a pattern. Lucky for us, we are totally surrounded by deciduous trees! We grabbed a few white oak leaves and a few sugar maples and used their distinct patterns to trace on red, yellow, and orange construction paper. (Since Sydney is four, she also had to cut out blue, white, and purple leaves to make fall even more colorful!)

We spent a quiet afternoon cutting out the various leaves. And then spent another quiet evening taping them to windows all over the house. The effect was quite festive! The next day a neighbor commented to Sydney that she had noticed her beautiful fall decorations.

We will probably pull down all the leaves and pack them into a manila envelope for next year. It's too bad for the trees that they can't do the same!
