Here is the library craft that we did recently. The leaves that they chose were local ones.
There were 3 different leaves that the kids could choose from. My son choose 2 of them.
I cut up the construction paper strips for him. Then we put glue (glue stick) all over the leaf drawings, and he placed the construction paper pieces where he wanted them. When done, I drew the leaf lines over the construction paper and cut out the leaves for him.
