Ahhhh, fall!  Crisp, sunny days, tart, juicy apples, and vibrant, colourful leaves decorating the trees!  I love crafting with my daycare hooligans in the fall.  There are so many colours and textures and natural elements for little ones to explore.  One of my favourite things to make with the kids at this time of year are fall trees!  We’ve come up with lots of creative tree crafts over the years, using materials that add texture and interest to our projects, and that make the process fun and results beautiful!
