Autumn Leaves Toddler Craft

Today at Noah's Ark @St Nics we made autumn leaf pictures.  This was a fantastically easy craft to prepare, the toddlers loved it and the mums were thrilled.

All you need are:
- tree trunk and branch shapes
- red, yellow and brown leaf shapes
- glue
- plain paper
- pencils (optional)

How to:
1. The kids picked what colour backing paper they wanted. 
2. Then they picked a tree shape (I cut them all individually so they were all different) and glued it liberally.
3. Once the tree was stuck down they chose leaves and stuck them down.
4. Some of the kids decorated with grass and conkers and sky; others didn't.

I make mistakes
Too many by far
Will you forgive me
If I say what they are?

I talk too much
Though I try to contain
All of the thoughts
Driving me insane

I always step up
Even when I should not
I like to help out
Though it ties me in knots

I often shed tears
My heart's there on my sleeve
I'll stand right beside you
However you grieve

I care what you say
What you're thinking of me
I'll take it to heart even
If it brings me to my knees

These are some faults
Not the total at all
I hope you'll forgive them
Not laugh when I fall
