Crafts for the kids

A couple of weekends ago my niece and nephew came up to stay with us for a couple of days. Whenever they come up here I always try to come up with a craft to make with them. Over the years I have collected quit an assortment of craft goodies, they are from school, old hobbies, new hobbies, all sorts of stuff. The craft has to be something that is easy enough for them to do and something that won't just end up on the floor or become clutter once they get it home. Lately I have been doing things with them that we can hang on the walls. This time we made a little wall hanging, or it could be place on a wall shelf. They wanted to remember the fall colors so this is what we came up with.

We just used some extra pieces of plexi glass and spray painted a frame on them. Then we took dried, flattened leaves and spay mounted them to the back side of the glass. After everything had time to dry we put clear transparency on the back to hold everything in place. It also gave to glass a more foggy look.

I'm happy to say that both of them loved their little project. I was pretty please about how they turned out too.
