The hot spell brought many leaves to the ground and what better way to appreciate them then by making a leaf stamping art?

All you need is lots of leaves, paint brush, tempera paste and a piece of paper for stamping on. We used plastic egg cartons to store paints and empty drink bottles to wash the paint brush. We try to recycle stuffs before disposing them.
