After collecting beautifully coloured leaves outside with both my granddaughter and grandson, on two separate occasions, Grandma suggested some fall craftiness.
My three year old granddaughter was impressed with our crafty creation, my four year old grandson not so much.
This simple craft involves colourful leaves, waxed paper, and a hot iron. The leaves get sandwiched between two pieces of waxed paper, wax side inside the sandwich. The hot iron makes the wax paper pieces melt together. Kind of like a grilled cheese sandwich, an analogy my granddaughter came up with.
My grandson however, was adamant that I dismantle the fall craftiness, so the leaves were loose again.
My granddaughter took her craft home intact, my grandson took his leaves home loose. To each his/her own!
