I’m always on the hunt for craft activities that use up the leaves my daughters like to collect on the way home from school pick-up.
On this occasion, I was the one to pick up a selection of dead leaves on our walk home.
I had an idea to create a gorgeous leaf garland, and decorate the leaves with metallic pens.
It’s the sort of craft that is easy for kids to do because you give them a pen and tell them to draw on each leaf.
I’m thinking of using the garland as a decoration for Christmas to add a ‘homely DIY’ feel to our Christmas decorating this year.
You can find other leaf garland variations below:
- Fine Motor Skills
- Rainy Day Craft
- Christmas Craft
- Anytime Craft
- Just for Fun
- Allows kids to explore outside
- A lot of brown/dead leaves of various sizes or similar sizes depending on the look you’re after
- Brown Twine/String
- Silver, Gold or White Sharpie Pens
