We made a little announcement the other day……..
we are pretty excited!!!!!
It’s true with us as most people, WE LOVE FALL. The crisp air, the smell of bonfires, the beauty in the trees and their leaves, warm drinks, extra cuddles, the getting dark earlier so your kids think they have to go to bed earlier…… We decided to work on a little fall craft to bring some of the beauty outside in. Plus it got us out of doing some of our book work (we homeschool). We went in our backyard and collected small branches and pretty leaves. Once back inside we took a blank canvas and I hot glued the branches on in a way to resemble a tree. The girls then used school glue and rubbed it on the back of the leaves with q-tips then stuck them on the “tree”. After that we glued on some yarn to spell the word ‘fall’ and hung it on our wall. The wall needed a bit more so we added a free printable I found on pinterest and a little owl a sweet friend had given me. Viola! We had our fall wall. Thinking about adding some little tags to the tree with things we are thankful for this month. All in all it was a super easy project and it was really fun collecting the leaves with my girls. I told them to find the prettiest leaves they could and several times they would say , “mommy look at this beautiful leaf.” Of course to me the leaf had holes and dirt and wasn’t all that great. But they didn’t see it, they just saw the beauty in the color of the leaf and looked completely past its imperfections. My how these little ones teach me so much.
