Witch and Pumpkin Leaf Bags

This time of the year leaves are plentiful and in so many different and beautiful colors!  How Wee Learn came up with a fun, simple way to display the fall foliage.  Once I saw their Leaf-y Jack-o-lantern   post I knew I had to give this a try and we added a friend to our pumpkin bag......Ms. Witch!!

My daughter was having a playdate this afternoon and I thought this would be a nice outdoor activity to do with the girls.  In addition to making a pumpkin leaf bag I thought since there are still plenty of green leaves too that we would also make a witch leaf bag!

I don't know of any kids who don't love to collect leaves and anything nature related.  Just as I suspected the girls couldn't get enough leaves and kept collecting and stuffing!  What a nice activity as the weather is ideal to be outdoors right now.

The girls thought the bags looked great with the pumpkin and witch face and my daughters friend had the idea of making her bag into a backpack - love young, creative minds!!

This activity is so simple - draw a face on the bag, head outdoors and start collecting leaves till your bag is as filled as you like.

We hung ours on a shelf hook in our living room but you could display anyway you want....maybe even make it into a back pack!!
