Leaf Garland
By Nancy Cavanaugh

This is a simple and quick project that preschoolers and kindergarteners can do.

What you need

Construction paper -- orange, red, yellow, brown, and tan

Crayons or markers


Glue, tape, or staples

A long piece of green or brown yarn or string

How to Make It

1. Draw a leaf on a piece of construction paper. You can draw your own or use the patterns we've provided. Make sure to draw a thick stem on the top (your leaf will hang from this stem, which will be folded over).

2. Cut out the leaf. Draw the leaf veins if you wish.

3. Fold the leaf's stem in half.

4. Attach the leaf to a long string using tape, glue, or staples. Make more leaves and attach them to the string. Hang up for a wonderful autumn decoration.
