As leaves are already (heavily) falling from the trees we though it would be fun to get crafty with them and make this leaf hedgehogs craft.
We’ve been really into hedgehogs here lately, we already did a pine cone hedgehog and an origami one!
Crafting with nature materials is fun and crafting with leaves is twice as great as you can take this opportunity to teach the kids about different kinds of leaves.
Leaf Hedgehog Craft
What you’ll need
- leaves (beech, elm, birch or anything similar)
- black marker
- white paper
First make sure your leaves are really dry as they will wrinkle afterwards if they are not.
Draw the hedgehog spikes and head details on the leaf and glue it down on the white paper (stick glue and white glue are both great choices for this craft).
Draw the little legs. All done!
