Somewhere on the tracks of ambition, I missed the train to a world full of the little joys of life. Running after butterflies, catching snowflakes with my tongue and just lying under the sky and gazing at the stars. In fact the temperature inside the office was my only indication of change in season. Till of course my munchkins came into my life. Now I know seasons with the fragrance of fresh flowers, with the dance of the raindrops, with the sight of mustard fields and the noise of fallen leaves. Oh yes, fall is approaching, is it not?
There were couple of things we did last fall: we went shape-hunting with fallen leaves and twigs, ant-watching and visited cherry and apple orchards. This fall, as the kids grow a year older we thought of doing something different. As a fall nature craft, we merged leaves with pencil drawings and made beautiful cards and wall hangings. Of what? Insects. Because don’t they come out and enjoy this season the most?
Fall Nature Craft
Here is how we did this craft activity.
Leaves in different shapes, sizes and colours
A pair of scissors
Step 1: We chose 4 insects: A butterfly, a dragonfly, a house fly and a beetle. You can choose your own favourites. We then drew parts of the insects (you can use a stencil if you are not too sure about the drawing) and placed the leaves to mark their positions. Make sure you divide the chart paper in 4 parts or you can even cut it out and fold it into 4 cards.
Step 2: Before pasting the leaves, colour the drawn parts. Make them as colourful as you wish. After all fall colours are bright and happy!
Step 3: Now that your cards are ready you can embellish them with some border. You can either use colour or leaves. Either way they make a perfect fall decorative.
We had a super fun-time doing this craft activity for fall. Hope you have a great time too.by
