- Preserved leaves—Preserve colorful leaves by ironing them between sheets of wax paper. Make them into bookmarks, window decorations, or a hanging mobile. Be a good nature steward, and use only leaves that have fallen off the tree and leaves that do not have “bug sleeping bags” that may still be occupied.
- Leaf rubbings—Place a leaf, veins facing upward, on a smooth surface. Place paper over the leaf and rub over the paper with a crayon or colored pencil to create a beautiful leaf image.
- Leaf sailboats—Make small “sailboats” from pinecones, sticks, or pieces of bark. Attach a stick “mast” and a leaf “sail.” Place your sailboat on a pond, stream, or puddle and watch it sail.
