Easy fall leaf craft for kids (with free printable template)
DIY fall leaf-shaped notepad
It’s wonderful to see the changing colors of Nature in fall from green to yellow to red. Different changes occur in our surroundings in each season like clockwork.
It’s easy for kids of today’s generation to miss out on all the beautiful, but subtle changes that Mother Earth brings with it each season due to the prevalence of increased screen usage.
Here, we have come up with a craft idea that will help kids get educated on how the color of leaves changes during autumn, in a fun way. This will help kids to learn more about the changes occurring in Nature and thus observing their surroundings closely.
And in the end, we make a small notepad, so it’s useful too.
