Hi everyone. I am hoping that everybody is having a good week !!

Today I have this very popular Autumn project. The project is to go outside collect some leaves, bring them home and do some leaf rubbing using crayons.

For this project you will need some leaves, crayons, scissors, white tissue paper and tape.

Put the white tissue paper on top of your leaf, for the tissue paper to not move put a piece of tape in both sides of the tissue paper. Now you can start to rub with your crayon.

Fall / Autumn Tissue Paper Window Display Mosaic

Hi everybody. How has your weekend been ? Mine has been OK, relaxing with my family.

Today we have this simple craft idea. It is to make a window display using the season theme for fall.

We have seen lots of these window display crafts on others sites, so we decided to make our own. You need to use safe scissors,  because there is a lot of paper cutting. I think the best thing to do is to have an adult make the display and then let the children decorate it with the tissue paper cuttings. This depends on the age of the children that are doing this window display craft.

You have to gather some black construction paper, scissors, tissue paper, and clear contact film / paper.

We used lettering templates for this fall / autumn display craft but you can use any another shape like leaves shapes, autumn fruit shapes (pumpkins) or any other shape that you like.

You have to cut the outline shape out from your black construction paper. Attach the black paper you just cut out onto a sheet of the clear contact film. Now you can cut out the excess of the contact film / paper leaving the part in the middle of your template. Finally attach the tissue paper as if they were pieces of a mosaic choosing colors of your choice.

Happy Autumn !!
