Super cool AUTUMN LEAF ART project! Real leaves attached to cardboard; aluminum foil placed over leaves (shiny side out); gently rub; color with markers; hairspray to blend colors. Make a single leaf or a whole collage! Kids will love it! Tutorial here: http://staff.ecarter.k12.mo.us/mbell/LeafArt2010-11.html (fall, leaves, crafts)
Cotton bud dot tree painting. On white paper draw the trunk of a tree and with pencil make a circle, kids use cotton bud in seasonal colours to make small dots to fill the tree circle - could do for each season changing the colours or just do a colourful tree - would look great as a display.
Clothes Pin Giraffe. This is an easy craft for kids! You just need some paint (or markers), wooden clothes pins tape and a little imagination! Once the kids get their giraffes made, then you can talk about giraffe facts or just take a wild adventure in your safari!
