Fall Crafts for Kids

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.

So... I know you don't know me and I know I don't ever comment... I usually don't unless I know a person well or have something really important to say, BUT... I wanted to let you know you've been tagged on my blog... and that I keep up with your blog and love it. In fact, today while reading it, I got into such a worship mode from the music that even after being done reading, I've been sitting on my bed with the laptop to the side, letting the playlist roll while just enjoying His presence... that is until the Cranberries came on, lol. Anyway, you're tagged.

Very neat. Thanks for shraing. What is a preschool co-op?

elizabeth--
Thanks! I'll get right on that. I laughed about the Cranberries.

Real Me--
"Co-op" stands for cooperative. My preschool co-op consists of a group of moms who get together every week and do preschool for our kids. We all contribute something--a craft, activity or children's books that correlate with our weekly theme. Last week's theme was leaves. Next week's theme is pancakes!
