Hey OTBM Readers! Another beautiful Fall day meant another round of leaf collecting for us! Sometimes it’s fun to think about familiar shapes (like leaves) in a new way. Today our leaves became animals!
- heavy books
- a marker or pen
- index cards
- glue stick
Start by collecting your leaves. Look for a variety of shapes and colors! When you get home, press them under some heavy books. (We left ours overnight.)
Attach your leaves to the index cards (like “specimens”), then think about what kinds of animals they might be!
We used a fine tip marker and some paper bits to make simple eyes then attached them with the glue stick. The animals were created with simple line drawings, but it would be fun to make them more complicated too!
What kind of animals did you find in your leaves?
See you next month!
