Leaf Crafts for All Year

| |

Leaves… glorious leaves. They are such a wonderful indicator of the Seasons – and in terms of leaves, the most glorious season is of course Autumn with all the beautiful Autumn colours. We love Autumn Crafts for Kids as well as nature crafts for kids! I love the reds and oranges and yellows. Beautiful. So we love doing leaf crafts too, celebrating wonderful nature all around us!
