Wax paper leaves

This week we are learning all about leaves, and I found an adorable craft idea HERE that we tried out today. My kids LOVED doing this craft and I think they turned out pretty darn cute :)

I have never done the whole melting-crayon-between-wax-paper crafts...but I LOVED it! It was so fun to see what the different colors would look like after they melted and the kids really enjoyed it.

First up was my kids dream come true...I was actually telling them to pick the wrappers off the crayons instead of getting after them! :)


The blog I linked to has some great tips for when you actually do the ironing, I would definitely check it out if you have never done these before.
Can you believe how gorgeous those colors are??
Also, on that link she has a leaf template you will want to print out so you can trace your leaves.

These were so fun to make and I loved that they used items you always have laying around the house (unless you're me...then you just send your kids to your awesome neighbors to borrow some wax paper :). I foresee aLOT more wax paper creations in our future :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have to say...I am so grateful for all the wonderful inspiration I have found on so many of YOUR blogs. I am amazed at the creative, unselfish people in the world that so gracefully share of their talents, making my life easier and more beautiful. So keep up the great work you do and keep all the wonderful ideas coming....I will if you will!;)

What a great idea. I think I'm going to have our Young Women do this for a decoration for our Young Women in Excellence coming up. We thought about gathering leaves, but this would be sooo much better!
