Boy Mama: Fall Leaves Crafts and Activities

Fall Leaves Crafts and Activities

My youngest asked if we could paint some leaves this morning. It has been a long time since we have done any crafts at home, so I immediately said yes. He wanted to cut some leaves from paper and paint them, but I suggested we take a walk and collect some real leaves to paint.  So, we took a short walk in the neighborhood and collected a ton of different kinds of leaves.

Once we were back home, we talked about which colors are fall colors. We set up our paint tray and began painting.

Here are a few of my favorites:

So, inspired by this experience with my boys, I search around the web a bit and found a handful of other fall leaves crafts that I hope to do with my boys this season.
