I love doing crafts with the kids. I feel that it stimulates them and it's fun and a great, fun way to learn :)
The other day I invited Ashleigh and Liz over so we could do some crafty Fall-themed with the kids.
Ashleigh ended up having to work, but Liz still brought Adia along so that she didn't miss out on the fun.
First up, a nature scavenger hunt (Sam LOVES scavenger hunts, like he LIVES for them!).
See how serious Sam takes it :)
After the hunt, we went inside and did leaf prints from the leaves we gathered:
all you need:
paper (cut in half)
leaves (place them under the paper)
fall colored crayons (lightly color the top of the paper over the leaf)
scrapbook paper (then glue your finished leaf print onto some scrapbook paper)
string/ribbon (thread the string through the top of the scrapbook paper)
I love how it turned out and the kids all loved it too!! :)
