Thanksgiving Leaf Garland
Leaves from Nature Walks
Thread and needle or sewing machine or yarn
Take the time to bring your children on daily nature walks this week. As you walk along, gather any leaves that catch your eye to create this Thanksgiving Leaf Garland to decorate your home or nature place with. You may even wish to drape the garland over your mantle, doorway or use it as a centerpiece at your table.
Tell the children that you are collecting Mother Nature’s leaves to make a pretty garland and show her how thankful you are for the earth’s blessings.
There are a few ways you can do this:
- You can use a thread and needle and carefully create the garland.
- You can poke holes in the center of the leaves and string the leaves with yarn.
- You can use a sewing machine to stitch over the leaves and create garland.
Have fun and be sure to send us photos of any creations (firstname.lastname@example.org)
