Fall is my favorite season, even more so now that I live in Las Vegas. The only thing that I don’t like is that there are no beautiful trees or falling leaves. I try to compensate by buying fake leaves and decorating with them. One way I wanted to use the fake leaves to decorate is by having DJ make a wreath with them. I made this to be an easy fall wreath craft for toddlers. That way any of you can easily do this too. If you want to make this as well you can use fake or real leaves if you have them.

Easy Fall Wreath Craft for Toddlers
I started out by cutting a piece of paper, I used regular printer paper, into the size I want the wreath to be. Since DJ is only 3, I wanted this to be a small sized wreath that I can hang on the door of his & Brooklyn’s room. I’ll be honest, I’m not very artistic. As you can see, my cut out is a little wonky. Since it was going to be covered up, I didn’t worry too much.
I let DJ paint the glue on to the wreath for a more even distribution, and helped him out by adding more glue to the leaves that wouldn’t stick properly. DJ also chose which leaves he wanted and where he wanted to put them. I really wanted this to be his own craft with minimal interference. I really believe that we need to let our children be children. We need to let them make messy crafts, and color all out of the lines. They’re little and learning. The best way for them to learn it by making messes and mistakes.
I was really proud of him for how he put thought into where every piece went. I watched him take a leaf move it around the wreath. The wreath came out pretty good, and I can’t wait to hang it up on his door.
