Walking back through the park on the way back from playgroup yesterday, we stopped to collect some leaves. Once we got home, and I'd done the pushchair-to-cot sleepy-toddler-transfer, I ran round collecting up bits and bobs we'd use later to do some making. We didn't need much - only a couple of glass jars, the bottle of PVA glue, a few paintbrushes and the leaves from the park that I'd rinsed and dried.
I don't do much in the way of craft with my little one at the moment (crayons and felt tips aside) and want this to chaange - she's getting more interested now so I think I need to search Pinterest for toddler art activities - any ideas welcome!
We covered the jars in a layer of glue (this was the bit she loved best!) and then put the leaves on top. I wish I'd snipped the stems off as they insisted on poking upwards all the time - nothing a bit of extra glue can't solve though! A few coats of glue on top of the leaves to keep them on and the jars were finished. They took quite a while to dry (that may have something to do with the copious amounts of glue that was painted on them...) but were definitely worth the wait!
