autumn leaf stained glass (kids craft)

Monday, October 10, 2011 – Filed under: arts and crafts,autumn,Canadian,kids art,kids crafts,kids friendly ::

In the midst of canning pears, dividing perennials, playing with baby toes and an increasingly curious (and baby squat afficionado… hello mama biceps!) man cub…. we decided to welcome autumn and bring some of the gorgeous leaves falling outside, in.

After carefully collecting a pile my little (though now not littlest one) arranged them on our waxed paper. It looks brown here because it truly is – it’s an eco one but you could use the white stuff for a more transluscent effect against the window.

Then she put another piece of waxed paper on top, and had her first extensive ironing experience. Yay for ironing boards whose height can be adjusted!

    This was a clever thing – I think I might remember having done something like it once a long time ago when the kids were little. Leaves have so much magic – and so does wax paper. Your daughter will never forget this, I think –

    And for you, the leaves in the window anchor you to the moment. You haven’t missed fall in the rush of other things. Wonderful.
