Crafting with Kids: Leaf Rubbings

We dodged a bullet and didn't loose power during hurricane Sandy! I hope all of you fellow east-coasters stayed dry and safe and get power restored soon! 

Moussia and Yosef love crafting and now that they no longer nap, the afternoons are really long! So, last Friday we made leaf rubbings with crayons, paper and leaves we gathered from the park.



Making these are easy: just lay the leaf face down on the table so the spine is facing up. Cover the leaf with a sheet of paper and rub it with a crayon that has the paper peeled off.

Moussia wanted to put them to good use so we cut napkin rings out of cardboard paper towel tubes and glued the paper leaves to the ring.

She was very excited to set the table for Shabbat with her creations!
I love this craft because:
1. there was nothing to buy
2. it got the kids outdoors collecting leaves 
3. they used them at the dinner table and showed off their handi-work to the guests!
