Autumn Activities

*Preserving Fall Leaves

You will need:
Dried leaves
floor wax
a bowl
waxed paper
an old catalog or phone book
old or inexpensive paint brushes

Gather some pretty fall leaves once they have fallen. Lay newspapers down on a work surface. Pour some wax into the bowl. Have the kids carefully brush wax onto the leaves. This will make them shiny. To dry, place them between two pieces of wax paper and place between the catalog or phone book pages. Use to make cards or decorate the windows and doors.
