The signs of Autumn have been around for a while – conkers growing, blackberries and shorter evenings. I love Autumn so I’m pretty happy to embrace it all.
I noticed lots of sycamore seeds around the park so picked some up incase we could craft with them. We actually came up with something very simple – sycamore seed faces!
We used sycamore seeds and card face blanks from Baker Ross (although you could easily draw your own faces). We also used a glue stick, some coloured card and wool.
First my daughter glued the sycamore seed on where she thought it should go. It really did make the perfect moustache!
She wanted to make her person into Daddy so started adding a nose, eyes and a mouth. Then she thought she would make a collage, as we’ve just been learning about them.
I’m not sure it’s a great likeness but she had fun and it was lovely to actually use one of the many things she picks up on our walks!
