  • Great idea for old newspapers. Fun


  • You could cut a tiny hole with scissors instead of using a hole punch or a staple. You have to use scissors to cut the leaf shapes out.
    I notice the scissors aren’t listed in the “what you’ll need”.


  • I’ve been trying to teach our 4yo about Autumn but we have very few deciduous tree varieties here. This was a fun activity to try and reinforced this concept.


  • Another gorgeous bunting project – there have been so many of them. I particularly like this one because it uses newspapers and items already around the house.


  • I not sure what a bunting is, it would look quite cute ganging up though I think


  • A great craft idea for the kids to celebrate Autumn!
