Here is a fun fall activity you can do with your kids. All you need are a few supplies and you can make this wreath in 30 minutes or less.
- Fall leaves
- Paper plate
You will want to pick out your fall leaves a couple of days or a week before you use them. It is best to flatten them before you use them for this craft.
My son and I picked out some pretty leaves of different shapes and colors and then we pressed them between the pages of a phone book. We only had them in there about 3 days or so and they were nice and dry and flat.
Next cut the center out of a paper plate so that you have a ring shape, like the form of a wreath.
Have your child glue the leaves around the edges of the plate. You can paint the plate first if you like, but we just left ours white and tried to fill in the holes. I think we were able to fill in the empty spots pretty well.
Let the wreath dry before hanging.
This wreath is so quick and easy and I love how pretty it looks, perfect for fall.
