Exploring, Playing & Creating with Leaves

Oh, Happy Leafy Fun Day!

Our Leafy Godmother 
(a.k.a Joyce from Dinosaurs & Octopuses)
sent the Lil Divas a package full of Fall Leaves
in many wonderful sizes, shapes & colors.

They were beyond thrilled with this unexpected treasure
(I kept the secret! Yay, me!)

They spent whole afternoons engaged with these leaves
doing leaf rubbings,

making leaf collages,

creating leaf people

that turned into works of art

Can you guess which Disney Princess this is?

and making leaf prints in play dough.

The Lil Divas also enjoyed role playing that they were 
Fall Trees losing their leaves. Leaves were cascading down 
from atop our couches onto the ground!

A special thank you to Joyce for providing us 
with the means to explore leaves in these fun ways.


Sneak Peek
Tomorrow we have a "dreamy" craft to share with you 
that we are very excited about.


* I link to some of these crafty & educational  linkys*


  1. Oh they did such a good job at creating leafy masterpieces! I have to say though, I'm rusty on my princesses. Who is it? Lol. Thanks so much for the mention, and you are very welcome! Thanks for sharing what they did with them!

  2. I love the leaf princess. He is super cute!

  3. Oh my, their leaf people are great!! I am guessing the princess is from Tangled??? I'm a little rusty too since my oldest are boys.

  4. What great ideas! I never thought about making leaf people or leaf prints in playdoh. I will have to try these projects with my son. Thanks for the ideas!

  5. Beautiful! I think Fall leaves are my most favorite image. The colors and shapes are just gorgeous- Thank you so much for linking up to the Critters and Crayons Linky!

  6. I love the leaf Rapunzel! So cute, so glad you have these great leaves to play with! Some of them are huge!

  7. Some great craft ideas for fallen leaves. (Especially like the googly eyes...)

  8. OMG!! These are so stinking adorable. Wish I didn't live in a place full of juniper and cactus. I love your blog. I'm your newest follower. (actually I thought I was already following you but I couldn't find you in my blog list. But now I am definitely following you)
    Would love to see you DIY Home Sweet home.

    P.S. I have a linky every Monday. Would love for you to stop by and link up.

  9. These are SO adorable. What a great way to use the thousands of leaves on the ground that my husband keeps cursing at ;)

    I'd love for you to stop by and share this (or another great activity) at my new Thrifty Thursday Linky Party this Thursday!

  10. love the leaf projects! thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday! Hope to see you back on the first Sunday in January after the party takes a holiday break. Have a wonderful crafty holiday season!


Thanks for taking the time to visit Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas! I hope you will stay awhile to explore all we have to offer!
