One of the moms who attends the preschool co-op at my house came prepared to share these crafts with us. The kids painted leaves on sheets of paper. Once the paint dried, we cut out the leaves and made mobiles, attaching them to sticks with twine.
Here's the finished product. Aren't they great? I love the idea of using a stick to attach the leaves.
Then the kids made these great fall window decorations by placing fall-colored bits of paper and dried leaves between two pieces of contact paper.
