Yesterday we took the kids to an awesome arboretum to take their fall photos (usually the ones we use for our Christmas cards). I knew the kids would have fun for a little while, but figured I would need something to keep them interested. I found the perfect activity.
A while ago I saw the idea on a blog somewhere for packing tape bracelets to use to collect leaves on walks and hikes. I’ve been meaning to do it with the kids forever, so this was a great opportunity. It worked like a charm. They did in fact get bored after about a half an hour, but once we busted out the tape and they could stick leaves to it, they were all about having their pics taken again. Jeremy and I did it too and it was fun finding the perfect leaves and sticking them on the bracelets.
