 Autumn leaf cards
 

Autumn is thankfully hanging on a little longer with the beautiful Ginkgo trees still bright yellow. We’ll be using the coloured card we made last week to make autumn leaf cards. Using wool and child friendly needles, the kids will be using fine motor skills to sew the leaf vein patterns. This class is part sewing, part leaf identification. As all the leaves are falling off the trees it’s a great time to pick them up and see if you can get to know some of your local tree species.
