Nature Stationary - card to mom and dadHere is an easy/fun way to create stationary made with some leaves from your backyard, crayons, and paper. Afterwards, your child could write notes or mail to grandparents, aunts, uncles, or their friends (pen pals during this pandemic).

Note: The kid's outdoor table has a rough surface so it adds more texture which is nice or you could do this on a smooth surface too!

Total Time: Fairly quick (depends on your child/amount of paper you make)

Supplies:

  • assorted leaves
  • crayons
  • paper

  7. This could be used as a leaf art piece to hang up/display or as stationary (which we will be doing to write to loved ones).
