Kids On Tuesday

Here is a fun Fall craft to do with your siblings, kids you babysit, or in a class setting!  It gets them, and you, out in nature to enjoy the Fall colors!

~ Fall Wreaths ~

What You'll Need:
- Construction paper in Fall colors
- Colorful leaves
- Glue
- A pencil
- A lid or bowl to use for drawing a circle

First, have the child go out in the yard and pick up 15 to 20 colorful leaves.

Then have them pick out ther favorite Fall colored paper.  After that they can trace around the lid or bowl to make a circle in the middle of their paper.

Next have them arrange their leaves around the cirlce they've drawn on the paper.  They can even layer it if they want.

Then they can glue them in place.  A hot glue gun may be best for this, it will depend on the age of the child.  Just regular craft glue worked well for us.

After they are done glueing the leaves you can have them write something in the middle!  Like "Give Thanks", or a Bible verse, their name, etc...

And there you go!  :)
