Collecting and Pressing Leaves

Hello Families!  I hope your kiddos are enjoying their time off.  I have a favor to ask.  Beginning next week we will be starting several projects using fall leaves.  Would you mind taking a leaf walk with your child and collecting some beautiful leaves for us?

We are looking for all different sizes, shapes, and colors.  The leaves also need to be pressed.  Laying leaves between newspaper and putting heavy books on top works well.

Phone books also work well for pressing leaves.  Once the leaves are inside the book, it will take several days for them to dry out.

Thanks for your help collecting leaves!  Think of all the beautiful projects we will be making with these!

Happy leaf collecting!
