One thing I always remember doing as a kid living in NY, is collecting leaves in the fall...then the crafty girl in me would take them inside and make some kind of art project with them! For this challenge, go out with your kids and have a fun nature walk, pick up some cool leaves and do some leaf rubbings to make fun and interesting backgrounds! Just put the leaf under paper (thin paper works best), use crayons to rub over the leaf, and voila! Instant background! Have fun and don't forget to "smell the roses", er, I mean the leaves!

PS... I know in many areas it's still "Summer" and leaves are hard to find on the ground but we just picked some from our garden! We used hydrangea leaves and even some herbs! Made it smell nice too!

The first is by my DD Gia (age 4)...I think she watches me too much 'cause she said "I need a saying and a ribbon Ma!"
The second is by my DS Chris (age 2 1/2)...he just wanted to get more leaves!
