Leaf Stick Kids Craft

This Leaf Stick Kids Craft is a great fall craft idea.  Great for holding, sticking in a shirt pocket, adorning the top of a present, placing in the soil of a potted green and MORE!!  Best of all it is quick and easy to do.

Trivia: Many plants stop making food in the fall. The chlorophyll goes away. Then we can see orange and yellow colors. These colors were in the leaves all summer, but the green covered them up.

Supplies

Wooden ice cream spoon (alternatively a popsicle stick would do)
Silk fall leaves or Collect real leaves
White craft glue
Crayons or paints
Wiggle Eyes

Instructions

Color or paint the wooden spoon ( or popsicle stick)
Glue leaf to the stick (if you use real leaves coat them with glue and let them dry before gluing to the stick) Add eyes to leaf by applying to small dots of glue

Allow to dry completely.
