stART – Leaf Man

18 Oct

We have been enjoying the last few days of the warm weather with walks in the various parks around our city. Savouring all of the beautiful fall colours just as the breeze gently plucks away the leaves.

The Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert uses these exact blown away leaves to create characters and a storyline. I enjoy the collage work in all her books. This one though is special. It captures all the colours of fall and locks it in a book, so beautiful to see and read. The children were just so occupied looking at all the different leaf creatures.

Leaves we collected

Ilyaas' leaf man

Our leaf creation

I did scan this artwork for keepsake.

Along side the Leaf Man we also looked at this book. Again truly wonderful ideas on using leaves.

    Assalaamu alaikum!

    Masha Allaah love these leaves. I love nature and am far from green here : ) Miss the greenery and the rain on this part of the world! Great activities!

    Wa’ Alaikum Salaam Umm Maimoonah.
    I’ll be missing the greens very soon here too. Masha-Allah, it’ll be interesting to study the desert too. May be you can give us a peek into desert wonders from where you are.
