Last week, we collected a bunch of leaves and put them together to make a fun Fall wreath.
various Fall leaves
yellow and brown construction paper
ribbon (for hanging)
pencils (for painting)
To start, I cut the inner circle out of each of the paper plates by bending it in half and then cutting a semi-circle. Then, the kids took red, orange, yellow, brown, and green markers to decorate their paper plates. To be perfectly honest, this step wasn't really necessary, but we were having a particularly difficult day with sick babies so I needed the kids to be able to do a simple project without constant supervision.
When the black paint was dry, we glued the sunflowers together and glued them to our leaf wreaths.
For a final touch, I added a ribbon bow to hang our wreaths.
I love projects like this that include their sweet little handprints. What an adorable way to welcome Fall!
