About a week ago we took a break from our book work and headed outside to collect some of the beautiful leaves around our yard. By the time we got back inside we each had handfuls upon handfuls! I wasn't sure what we were going to do with all of them, but I wanted to preserve the beauty of Autumn if I could.
This is our new art display. I always want to display the boys artwork, but never really had a great place to do it. So this year I pounded some nails into the wall, strung some jute, hot glued on big black buttons and painted a dozen wooden clothespins red. TA-DA a way to display our creativity.
The rest of the leaves we placed in books to be pressed. We will let our creative juices flow and make collages or leaf people or leaf creatures. Who knows what we will come up with, but it will be original, I'm sure!
