We went for a “nature walk” the other day. We came home with such a lovely collection of leaves I wanted to somehow extend their lifespan. I remember having a wonderful afternoon with my mom when I was about Sosi’s age, pressing leaves between wax paper. I’ve always had it in the back of mind as something I wanted to do with my kids.
While I was busy ironing the pages, I handed Sosi the much coveted Sharpie marker and asked that she could decorate the finished pages. I was so happy to see that she automatically drew faces of the leaves. I was planning for us to look up all the different types of leaves and label them all. I like her idea much better.
