Yesterday we read the lovely story Leaf Man by Louis Ehlert. All the pictures are made from leaves. Leaves from different trees and different colours. Some were used as they were. Others are cut.
It injects life into what starts as just a pile of leaves.
We headed out in the garden to collect a variety of leaves.
We collected a variety of leaves of different shapes, sizes and colours.
Back inside we assembled the leaves to make a person. Alice used some of the circle hole punches for eyes and a nose.
We assembled it all together using glue and double sided tape.
We then scanned it on the computer and printed so Alice could see how the book had been made.
A nice simple craft activity that didn’t take very long but encouraged her imagination.
As well as it being 30 days wild it’s also growing for wellbeing week. The lovely Anabelle Padwick has put together a pack of activities ideal for teachers or home schoolers. Worth a look of you’re in need of some ideas for teaching your children.
