The leaves are starting to change. Golds, fiery oranges, and deep reds once again paint the trees. All too soon this beautiful display of Mother Nature’s will come to an end. So we decided to capture a little of this magic with a simple fall craft.
I had the inner circle of the paper plates cut out and the yellow tissue paper glued to the plate’s back, trimmed up and ready for little ones to decorate before I even called the kids to the table. The tissue paper pieces had been ripped up ahead of time, too, by little hands that needed something to do one day.
Then we glued our paper leaves around the plate’s edge. With older kids you might suggest doing this is a pattern. The leaves could be put on facing a variety of directions, like they’ve been blown in the wind, or with each stem facing inward for consistency.
When they were finished, we had a little bit of fall’s beauty, right there in our kitchen windows.
This is a super simple fall craft for toddlers and preschoolers.
