Step 1

Collect leaves of varying colours, shapes and sizes.  Children love to collect them in a basket or box.

Step 2

On a flat, clean surface lay out a length of cling film (still attached to the roll).

Lay your leaves onto the cling film.

Step 3

Roll the cling film back over the top of the leaves to seal them in.

Using the scissors, cut the cling film off the roll and get the children to pat down the cling film so the two sides stick to each other (there won’t be a total seal but it’s enough to hold the leaves in place).

Step 4

Tape up onto a window using the adhesive tape.
