fall glitter leaves

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

And for just a bit more inspiration and instruction, you can watch me and my daughter at work:

Happy fall crafting!
