Monday 25th May 2020 - Half Term Activity

 

LEAF BOWLS

Find some time to go out to a nearby park, and collect a selection of leaves - different sizes and different colours. 

Back home, take two identical plastic bowls, and wrap the outside of one in cling film.

Layer the leaves over the cling film so it’s well covered, using diluted PVA glue to hold them in place.

Then cling film over the leaves, put the matching bowl on top and squeeze them together.

After a few days drying in a warm place, remove the bowl and cling film, and you’ll be left with a beautiful leaf bowl.

‘This is a nice activity to capture the colours of nature and make something you can keep and talk about.
