My daughter and I walked around the yard and collected as many different types of leaves as we could. For ease in creating, you will want to pick leaves that have recently dropped as they will be brighter and smoother. We then went inside and started to experiment with the leaves to see which animals we could make. After some creative brainstorming I ended up creating a bird in a forest and my daughter made a zebra under the sun. It was so much fun to see what she came up with.
After deciding on our animals and laying them out on paper we simply glued all of the leaves into place and just like that we had two new art projects to hang on the wall! Thanks Edible Garden Show for the great idea!
