Fun Fall Crafts

Wondering what to do with all those lovely leaves? Do a leaf rubbing: Place a dry leaf on paper. Place another piece of white paper on top of the leaf. Use the side of a crayon to work from the center of the leaf out towards the edges and rub the crayon gently over the leaf. hold paper and leaf still with other hand. It will pick up the high spots on the leaf and show the veins, texture and shape of it. Use all the fall colors and try different leaves. You can overlap them on the same page, or make one page for each and try and collect one leaf from all of the trees in the neighborhood!
