Glitter and kids usually don’t go well together, but my hardwood floors are much safer than carpet, so I give fall glitter leaves a go!
What you need:
First thing you’ll want to do is stop by a craft store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels a pick up a few basic essentials. You’ll need glitter, of course- and I like a range of glitter tubes. Yes, they are quite messy, but I have a tip for you that will help later on in this post – especially if you’re working with little kids.
You’ll also need a pack of wax leaves. These are simple plastic-like leaves of assorted colors. I got mine at the Dollar Store.
What to do:
- Line the leaves onto a cookie sheet or tray (to keep the glitter from getting all over the place). You’ll be glad you did because glitter gets absolutely everywhere, as you very well may know.
- Give your children some glue and tubes of glitter, and have them drizzle glue over the leaves and sprinkle with glitter.
That’s it-really. It’s short and sweet, but a craft that’s sure to keep the kids busy for a good while.
Display your fall glitter leaves when it’s all dry! For more fall activity ideas for your kids, check out this post.

Happy fall crafting!
