This is a simple and fun activity that my grandchildren, ages 18 months and two and a half years, and I made last week.
Gather leaves, flower petals, seed pods, acorns and small pinecones with the children. Some of the nature items from our collection came from my yard and some from theirs.
Ready to begin, we covered the table with our trusty vinyl tablecloth, and while I cut out the circles on two Chinet brand paper plates, the toddlers got to work choosing which treasures to glue on. They each enjoyed squeezing the glue out and pressing leaves on. We chatted about the different colors, smells, and shapes of the leavesOnce the creations were dry, I tied a bit of twine in the back to hang and added a twine bow in the front. So easy. Such fun!
