This craft is a fun way to engage kids for a couple of days this November 😉 Have them collect about two dozen pretty leaves from the yard and press them in a heavy book for at least 24 hours. When the leaves are nice and dry, they can be made into these adorable table cards below 😉
You Will Need: assorted leaves {pressed}, craft glue, acrylic paint in various colors, small paint brushes, markers, card stock

Step 1

Arrange and glue an odd number of leaves {like 3 or 5} in a fan-like shape on a folded rectangular shape of card stock.
