Autumn Reindeer Craft

Whilst out walking through the park the other day the boys collected a variety of leaves, read about our leaf hunt here.
Joseph noticed that one of the leaves looked like Reindeer Antlers and that he wanted to make a picture with them.

When we got home we emptied out our bag of leaves onto the floor and took a good look at all of the different shapes and colours of them. We had found big ones, small ones, long ones, star shaped ones, red, orange, brown, green and yellow ones. The boys were soon sticking them down onto paper making their autumn pictures.

He added a bit of glitter and stars to his picture as he says it makes it look all Christmassy πŸ™‚

Jak made a Devil

We turned an outdoor activity into an indoor one!

We’re going on a leaf hunt!

The boys went leaf hunting today, in search for different colours, sizes and shapes and to see how many they could find.
On our walk through the park there were lots of leaves laying on the floor so they starting collecting as many as they could.
Joseph found one leaf and said that they looked like Reindeer Antlers which gave Jak the idea of making an Autumn picture made of leaves but to look like a Reindeer, so off they went searching and rummaging for other leaves that could be part of a Reindeer.

Jak found a humongous leaf that was bigger than his head, which he said he is going to paint lots of colours.

The boys had lots of fun out in the park and have come home with a fabulous selection of leaves ready to go some autumn crafting with. They found big ones, small ones, long ones, fat ones, spiky ones, round ones, brown, red, yellow, orange and green ones! And now we have a little bit of Autumn in our living room ready to be stuck onto paper πŸ™‚
