One that we will definately be doing again.
I had a piece of driftwood lying around that we had collected some time ago.
I sent the kids out into the garden with a little bucket to collect some leaves. They did a really good job of collecting leaves and came back with a VERY full bucket - which made a lot of mess, but hey, nothing a vacuum cleaner can't fix in a jiffy.
We chose some bright colourful strings to hang our leaves and they helped me choose which which leaves to hang.
The leaves had little holes in them already so they were perfectly suited for mobile making.
Then we hung the mobile in Liam's room and had lots of fun taking photos of it.
Liam enjoyed having this hanging in his room and studying the leaves.
It lasted a few weeks until one by one the leaves dissapeared.
We still have the stick with the strings attached so we might make another mobile now with some of his treasures that he has collected from the beach.
*The tiles on the wall are canvases covered with pictures from old children's books. Another fun and simple project.*
