25 Leaf and Foliage Projects

What do you do, after school?

Come along with us and make 25 leave + foliage willowday projects, too:

25 project for everyone!

Items found in nature are often already perfect. When we bring these objects home, they become a part of a story. When one of the kids stash sticks by our front door or bring home something beautiful, found in nature, I'm often inspired --- the kids are often inspired -- and  these items become creations.  These projects can almost talk and when I look that these, I remember walks and talks, too,  that we've had while creating.

To my surprise, today, when I started to think about a future leaf project, I decided to take a look at what I already had and found, 25 willowday leaf and foliage project already here! I've put them in one tidy place, just for you, too. Happy After-school making! (But, they're for everyone and anyone!)
