Suncatcher

Yesterday I took Miss Caitlyn to a beautiful park to collect some leaves. We needed some fresh air. Today we decided to make something with the leaves.

Leaf Suncatcher

You need:
Wax Paper
Fall Leaves
Crayon Shavings
Adult with Iron
Newspaper


Instructions:
Cover work surface with newspapers. Sprinkle a small amount of crayon shavings on a piece of wax paper. Arrange leaves on top. Sprinkle more crayon shavings and cover with another piece of wax paper.
Place a piece of newspaper on top and iron with a warm iron until crayon shavings melt. Trim and hang in the window.

I think we added too much crayon shavings but it still turned out nice, and Caitlyn enjoyed doing it.

I truly love Fall! If only Texas would cool down and allow me to enjoy my most favorite season. Anyone else doing any fun fall crafts??

Hey! Thanks for the comment and stopping by. ;)

Your kids are adorableeeee. And I love that you do crafts with them. My mom stayed home 10 years with us doing things of the same sort, art day, science day, etc. etc.. Can't wait for my turn. :)

Take care. And I'll be sure to post some pics of the Madonna concert!
