Leaf Collecting Season

Leaf Collecting Season

Autumn is a great time of year for walks, and if you need to give any of the younger members of your family some inspiration for coming out for a walk, Autumn is a great time of year to collect different leaves, acorns, conkers, and pine cones.

But what do you do with all the things they find?

I don't know about you, but we end up with bags of items our youngest collects.

Well, here's one idea that gives you an extra activity from what they find: leaf art.

Our camping leaf art

Here's one we made with a camping-inspired theme, and maybe something that could be done at the campsite if you are camping this autumn.

You need some scrap paper, a pen, and some imagination with what you find.

The good thing about doing this at the campsite is that you don't need to bring the stuff home. Snap a picture of it on your phone, then leave the things with nature. 😉
