Help your kids make a translucent mobile with this fall leaf craft.
Go for a nature walk and collect an interesting assortment of leaves. Let your children place them in a zip lock bag to keep them safe while you are out.
Try to find a variety of different shapes and sizes, simple and compound leaves.
Thin, flattish leaves are best for this project, rather than thick, juicy leaves!
Leaves that have fallen and partially dried out will iron best. Alternatively, use pressed leaves for this project.
This project needs plenty of adult help, but the children will be delighted with the end-product.
