modern day craft time.


one of the many things i miss about elementary school is making seasonally themed craft projects. you get the chance to acknowledge and celebrate the world around you by:
  1. playing with colors and paper... among many visually stimulating things - especially sparkly glue.
  2. getting to make a mess.
  3. getting the chance to eat paper. and glue (but not the sparkly kind).
one simple project i remember involved pressing fall leaves between sheets of clear contact paper. the sheets were taped to a window and looked like stained glass when the light shined through.

scanning stuff is a fun way to preserve leaves too. this way i can share!
