Fall is one of my favorite times of year, think I have told you that already. lol
I just love the colors, the season, the pumpkins and all that fall, thanksgiving and Halloween bring.
My kids love Fall as well and doing crafts with Fall leaves is so much fun and you will be surprised at all the amazing crafts and activities you can do with them.
Autumn leaves have so many variations of colors that you will never run out of color options to use with these Autumn leaves crafts and activities.
You can use the whole leaf, or part of the leaf, totally up to you and these fantastic ideas I have for you from some amazing blogs you will sure to have hours of fun and entertainment doing these Fall Leaf crafts and activities with your kids.
Finding the perfect leaf can be easy but sometimes you have to go through lots of yucky ones to get the perfect one, I suppose that just depends on the way you like them too look.
Some people love the perfect leaf shape but others like them a little different.
Just before we get started with Fall Leaf crafts and activities you might find it helpful to know of some ways to preserve your leaves so they last a little bit longer than just a day or two.
Some easy ways to preserve them are to put them in a book and close it yep that is easy and the way I usually do it as it flattens the leaves and that way keeps the best shape.
You can use Mod Podge which is fantastic after you have painted or drawn on them as it keeps the color and makes them shiny and last so much longer.
You can also dip them in some wax and hang them to dry or iron them between two sheets of wax paper on a very low iron.
