Even though Fall has finally arrived in Texas, our flowers are still in full bloom and the leaves on our trees are still shiny and green. We've been reading a lot of Autumn themed books lately and the kids and I were wishing that we had some pretty fall leaves to enjoy. Thanks to the magic of leaf rubbing, now we do!
After school, we went on a walk and collected some cool leaves with lots of veins. We brought them home, did our rubbings on some manilla paper, cut them out and now the kids are busy decorating their doors with our new Fall leaves.
I'm sure everyone has done this before, but here's a little tutorial if you need it.
