A Couple of Fun Fall Crafts to Use Up All Those Leaves!

Click-A-Brick building blocks

Aside from the crisp air, shorter days, pumpkin everything (and no bugs!) the one other thing people associate with autumn is lots and lots and lots of leaves on the ground. 

You can always rake them up into a big pile and jump into them, but there are other things you can do with those leaves, including crafts. 

We are going to look at a couple of crafts you can make with autumn leaves stimulate your child's creativity and imagination. The first is an autumn wreath and the second is a fox face. 

Let's get started!

Step 3: Glue the leaves onto the circle, making sure to overlap them. You may need to use a stapler to get some to stick if they aren't sticking well with just glue.
