Frugal Fall Fun 3: Leaf Rubbing and Pictures

It’s that time of year where I don’t know what’s in the air but I get creative! I guess after lounging around during the summer and seeing all the amazing beauty outside, I feel inspired. Hence the series on Frugal Fall Fun. Today is all about crayons, pictures and more.

Need:
Your bag of treasure from the nature walk.
Crayons
White paper
Construction paper
Glue

Having brought home our bag of goodies Isaac and I set to work making special pictures. I got out the glue stick and helped in stick on all of our goodies we’d collected except the acorns. I was pretty impressed with him although I added a little sticky tape as our glue wasn’t so sticky!

Another great way to use the objects is to do leaf rubbings. Simply get a piece of white paper and place a leaf under it. Then grab some crayons and have your child rub over the top until you make a picture.

What a great way to preserve your nature treasure hunt! The only thing is Isaac loved the acorns and so i displayed them in a bowl. He wasn’t happy with that as he wanted to play with them of make a picture! Anyone got any creative ideas for acorns?
