Glue Leaves

Awhile back the kids and I made colored glue when there was a sale for school on glue bottles.  All you do is add a lot of food coloring to the bottle and stir it up.  We used the glue today to make leaves.  The was a very simple craft that the kids loved!  Here are the directions:

1. Make the colored glue

2. Draw leaves with permanent marker on wax paper (we copied our drawings from a leaf book we had checked out at the library).

3. Add the glue into the leaf drawings

4. Let harden (this took awhile since we got a little glue happy, think 2 days!)

5. Peel off and enjoy your leaf.  We hung ours in our kids rooms as decorations and also put a few on the kitchen table.
