Wax Leaf Garland
Decorate your house for Thanksgiving while keeping your kids busy with this fun activity & craft that is sure to keep their interest!
What You’ll Need:
*Ribbon, yarn, or twine
*Head outside for a little walk and collect some leaves. Be sure to get various sizes and colors. You don’t want leaves that are too brittle and will break.
*Lay the paper over the leaf and have your child make a leaf rubbing of each leaf with the crayons.
*Next cover the leaf rubbings with contact paper, front and back.
*Cut out the leaves, leaving about ¼ inch border.
*Using a hole punch, punch one hole on each side of your leaf cutout.
*Thread your ribbon through all the leaves to form your garland.
*Find a good spot to display the finished product and enjoy a little bit of the outdoors inside!
*Send us a picture of your kids and their garlands we may post it to our site! firstname.lastname@example.org.
