To prepare for Thanksgiving, Laura and I made two vases out of boxes filled with leaves gathered in our yard. This easy craft is appropriate for preschoolers and uses material readily available around most homes.
Here’s what you need:
– Assorted leaves, twigs, and berries
– Small rocks
– Paint brush
1. Bring along a bucket and clippers on a walk around your house or neighborhood. Collect leaves, twigs, berries, and rocks.
2. When you are back inside, protect table with newspaper and lay out supplies.
3. Check your recycling for a box. We used a cake mix box and a powdered sugar box. A cereal or cracker box would also work well.
NOTE: Due to narrow width, vase may want to tip. I used a paperclip to hold together the two vases we made, which provided greater stability.
