#FlashbackPost "Look Out Fall is Coming"

It’s September so you know what that means, Fall is approaching. Get ready for the weather to cool down and leaves to turn rusted colors as they turn into crackling pavement instruments. The smooth colors of orange, red and brown will fill the scenery. Now that the kids are getting back into school mode it’s time to show them that fall can be fun too. Here's a fun a activity to have ready for when Fall is here.

What you will need:
  • Leaves
  • Undecorated wreath from craft store
  • Glue gun
  • Markers/Paint

Once the leaves start turning it’s time to grab the kiddies and head outdoors. Whether it’s to a local park or you have a mountain of leaves building in your backyard, it’s time to gather the fall treasures. As you head out make sure the kids have bags, because you’re going to start collecting. Collect as many leaves as you can, even turning it into a game seeing who can get the most. Once you collect enough leaves it is time to take them in the house and inspect, pick the leaves that are not too small and not too crunchy.  You must have the best for what is next.

Now it’s time to get artsy! Grab the paint or markers and begin to draw designs on the leaves. After you have jazzed up those leaves let them sit and dry for a moment, then it time to decorate you wreath. Take your glue gun (caution it will be hot) and glue the leaves to the wreath. And there you have it your customized fall wreath. Once the glue dries you may hang your wreaths around the house and how them off to everyone.
