Fall foliage is probably the thing I miss most about growing up in New York. So many fond memories of jumping in gigantic piles of leaves and the most beautiful red and orange trees on our walk to school. If you’re lucky enough to live close to beautiful fall foliage (or if you’re planning a trip to those areas), here’s a prediction site of when it’ll be the best. I’ll be on the east coast for a business trip tomorrow and I’m hoping to have a quick peek. Even though we don’t have a lot of changing leaves here in the bay area, we still love doing leaf crafts with the kids. Here is a roundup of 5 favorites…
Autumn Leaf Soaps. So beautiful and a fun process for little ones to help with (you can also make these jello jigglers!)
Decorating pumpkins with leaves and some mod podge would be so up Edie’s alley!
I’ve never tried hammered leaf prints before, but it looks so easy and really fun for kids.
Fall Leaf Potato Stamping. This one might be my favorite fall leaf activity to do with little kids.
Grab some plastic masks and decorate them with any foliage you’d like: leaf masks!
