Leaf Confetti Pictures

Here's a simple yet fun craft that will keep little hands busy and make use of some of the leaves piling up in your yard. 

Supplies: paper, white glue, dry leaves, marker/pencil, and stencils if desired. 

Step 1: use hands to crush leaves, removing any stems as you go. This is also a great sensory experience since not only do the leaves have an interesting texture but are also surprisingly fragrant. 

Step 2: free hand or with the aid of a stencil draw a large/open-spaced design on your paper. 

Step 3: trace design with white glue.

Step 4: sprinkle crushed leaves over glue. 

Step 5: let dry a minute or so and then shake off excess leaves

The kids ended up making a ton of these over a several different days. Unfortunately, we don't have enough wall room to display them all.
