Wolf leaf craft

Nearly Autumn again - my favourite time of year for crafts! Today we went out for a walk to collect some leaves, we chatted about leaves falling off the trees and sang the leaves song. 

"Autumn leaves are falling down 
falling down, falling down, 
 Autumn leaves are falling down on the ground!"
To the tune of London Bridge. 

I got sent the idea for this cute craft by my friend, she saw it on  http://www.teachingideas.co.uk!

We stuck the leaf on a piece of paper and decorated with paper and googly eyes to make this wolf/fox.  Very easy and I think they look great!

Hedgehog printing picture

This is a bit of a different take on the one we did before -Hedgehog potato printing

Printed out some pictures of hedgehogs and mixed up some brown paint - good opportunity to chat about colour mixing.  (Red and green = brown)

Used black/pink for nose, ears and feet.

We used mini craft sticks to print spikes on the hedgehogs back.
