crafting with grandma - Waxed Fall Leaves!

Leaves dipped in wax to preserve color.I live in West Michigan; which is known for the beauty of it's seasons! We get all four seasons here - although until today it has been difficult to tell Summer actually arrived! Which means, our Falls are spectacular for the color in the trees!

I was browsing on Pinterest and saw a pin with directions for waxing and hanging Fall leaves and thought I'd share it with you! You'll find all the specifics at this link.

Take your grandchildren on a walk in the park, in the country or through the woods this Fall when the leaves turn to bright colors; as you walk, collect a few for waxing when you get home. Spend time making some wax leaves to hang in your homes and as you do, talk about the beautiful world God created! Ask your grandchildren what they think was the most amazing thing they saw on your walk. Ask them which leaf is their favorite. Lead them in popcorn praises to God for the beautiful world He created!

You might also have your grandchildren make a few extra wax leaves to give to their Sunday School teacher, a shut in or to their pastor! Enjoy!
