Joining Childhood101′s We Play this week….
A few weeks back the Picklebums and I attended the opening of Eco Toys and Baby store. We went along to do a craft activity for any kids (or adults) who were visiting on the day. Our activity of choice? Making Autumn Crowns.
Inspired by these gorgeous crowns over at Heart Felt Muski and I cut up some strips of card and collected some autumn leaves and had a bit of practice before the big day.
Staple your card into a ring that fits your child’s head first. You’ll need a nice thick paste (we made corn flour and water paste with a bit of pva glue for added stickingness) and it seemed to work better when we put the glue on the leaves rather than on the paper crown.
Muski wore his crown on and off all week.
Hopefully there are still a few autumn leaves left where you live so you can give this a try!
