Leaf rubbings garland

By | September 17, 2014

After the 4 year old has finished Reception I set out an Autumnal invitation to play. There were sheets of paper, a collection of leaves and crayons.

    As you know, we don’t do craft at all but this looks like something even we could do. Really lovely. Is there enough of a grain to come through, or does the paper need to be really thin?
    Where did this “invitation to play” phrase come from? In recent weeks I just keep hearing it everywhere, but literally only lately.
