kid's craft idea- fall leaves canvas

Here's a fall craft that my son (who is almost 4) & I made together....

I bought the canvas from the dollar store for 2 bucks, used Mod Podge & a foam brush I had on hand, and used some leaves that we collected together outside.

He & I placed the leaves in the vicinity of where we wanted them to be at the end, then I glued them on with Mod Podge & let me son try to help a bit with that.

We added some scrapbook letters to spell "FALL" in the blank spot we left. Then I added a couple coats of Mod Podge to seal the leaves.

He loves crafting with me when we have our learning time each day. And I love seeing him explore his creative side and spending time together.
