Fun Fall Craft

This craft is a great family activity. My son started making these when he was young and he got the entire family involved. We call them "leaf people."

Supplies:

  • Imagination!

Steps:

  1. Prepare your work space - clean off a table and cover with plastic or newspaper. dogs might be tempted to eat your supplies, so the floor may not be a great area for this project.

  2. Everyone gets one sheet of paper.

  3. Use the leaves, sticks, and greens to make people.

  4. Glue them down (glue the big leaves on the back, put the glue on the paper first where you will want the smaller items.

  5. Label, add a story, add a title

  6. Ta-da! Leaf people! We put ours on the doors around the house.

  7. Take a picture - post to Instagram and tag @WriteSpeakRelate. The leaves will crumble over time so you'll be glad you have some pics. That's the voice of experience talking. :-)

That's it! Have some fun. It's a quick craft, so you can do this in a fairly short period of time or do several and make a whole collection.

I hope you enjoy this. We spent a whole season making these one year and they are some of my favorite memories.


If your child helps set up or clean up without being asked, be sure to praise him/her. Then consider one of these innovative rewards for stepping up and being responsible:
