Leaf Collage

Today on our morning walk I noticed our tree (the one we showed in an earlier post) had lost a majority of its leaves. My toddler had been showing lots of interest in the leaves on the ground so we decided to pick some for a morning activity.

In case you forgot what our tree looked like last week, below is a before and after photo.

The tree leaves are starting to change color.

So I let my toddler pick out some leaves of her liking and we took them home. I let her choose some scrapbook paper to give our project a different look and we proceeded.
