First we made leaf rubbings with a few different leaves, by placing the leaves underneath a piece of paper and using a crayon to rub over the leaf. Next, we made a leaf press. I cut two pieces of cardboard the same size and placed a layer of tissue over it. Carter helped place a layer of leaves on the tissue and covered them with two layers of tissue. I placed the other piece of cardboard over the tissue and placed a heavy object on top of the press.
We will check it in a week and I will update the post with the results!
We grouped the other leaves into different categories-size, shape, edges and colors. Carter also had fun playing with the leaves and his toy bugs. Lots of leaf fun!
