Leaf rubbings are a craft favorite in the fall. All you need to do is collect some leaves, grab some crayons and paper and you’re off. We made grandma a card with a beautiful cover. We’ve got perfectly-sized beeswax or soy crayons for small hands too!
Also talking about crayons, did you know crayons rock for brain development? Crayons provide the brain with more feedback (pressure needed to make a mark, vibrations from the crayons up the arm to the brain, etc). Plus small crayons force the young children to grip the crayon on the right area with the right general part of the hand. Our soy crayons and beeswax crayon blocks are a GREAT option for developing fine motor skills. Also don’t toss those broken crayons – you can use them for improving the little one’s grip – or for making your own new fun-shaped crayons!
