I just love fall and doing autumn activities with my kids has always been a favorite past time for me. I like to usher in the feeling of a new season with celebration. One ritual I have with my girls is working on fall projects. This project I want to show you from a few years ago is our fall leaves suncatcher activity.
A few years ago my daughter and I worked on a fall leaves suncatcher, which was so simple to do. So in the spirit of the fall, I’m resharing this post and video.
While my younger child worked on her fall glitter leaves garland, my 5th grader at the time created a suncatcher using leaves we bought from a craft store.
She had a blast with it! Here’s our video showing how we did it.
It doesn’t take much.
Here’s what we used:
- wax paper
- pack of plastic leaves
- an iron
How we created the fall leaves suncatcher
- Arrange the leaves onto a sheet of wax paper into design of your choice.
- Place another sheet of wax paper on top -with leaves in between two pieces of wax paper.
- Iron the two pieces together (remember to be extra careful in having your kids handle the iron. I’d do it myself if she were younger).
Once your leaf “sandwhich” cools off, you can display it proudly in a window. That’s it! I told you it was simple.
Let me know if you should decide to try this.
