  1. that looks like a fun little craft. my son would love it just for the mess

  2. I, personally, choose the ‘dump’ method. That has always worked well for me.

    Seriously, what a cute craft idea! Your daughter’s leaf is awesome :).

  3. I’m visiting from Leslie’s blog… I love this craft and wish I’d thought of it when we could still find leaves… I’ll be watching for when you share a good idea for the loads of snowflakes we do have. Anyways, your family is beautiful, and I’ve enjoyed my visit.

  4. What a fun craft! I like really textured art sometimes, adds interest.
