Make it Monday

Good Monday morning!  I hope this lovely fall day is finding you enjoying the cooler, crisp air :)  Oh, how I love the fall!  Today's project involves leaves.  I love to go out and collect colorful leaves with my kids, they love to rake and jump in the piles and if I'm honest 
my favorite part is taking photos and scrapbooking the pictures :)  

I wanted to try something a little bit different with the kids other than the typical leaf rubbings and nature projects.  I found this on pinterest from Family Fun . . . 

So the boys and I tried our own . . . notice the train :), I told you this was really our own

First they glued the leaves down onto the paper

Then I drew what they asked of me . . . a train, a turtle, a butterfly, a fire (that was my oldest's idea - I thought it was pretty clever), and a one-eyed monster (another of my oldest's ideas).

Have fun creating something with nature today or this week.  Thanks for stopping by, I'd love for you to tell your friends about my blog and even leave a comment!  I do enjoy all the love you share here with me :) 

And don't forget about my GIVEAWAY :)
