Autumn Collage

Having a concern for the environment is also about taking note and taking care of it. For today’s activity I have made a collage with leaves and seeds. There are so many lovely colours and shapes of leaves at this time of year, and so many different types of seeds: conkers and acorns, thistledown and apple pips. Taking time to notice and admire what is around us in the natural world is important – and what we see and love, we are far more likely to protect. 

Having made my collection of leaves and seeds, I took a sheet of coloured paper. Then  I arranged the leaves on the paper … looked at them … moved them around … until at last I had a pattern I liked. Then I used some glue to hold them in place.  

I also took a photo as the leaves will not last for ever. 

I like the idea of making something without having to buy lots of things. The less we have to buy, the less damage we do to the environment. 

Why don’t you have a go and make a collage too?
