Autumn Leaf Hedgehog


This is an easy craft make when the autumn leaves begin to fall.
Draw a hedgehog outline on a piece of paper. Collect different coloured autumn leaves, spiky shaped ones work best. Starting at the top, glue a layer of leaves across the body, making sure the points of the leaves are pointing upwards. Then add a second layer of leaves which slightly overlap the base of the first row. Continue to add layers of leaves until your hedgehog’s body is covered. Add a face and your hedgehog is complete.

You will need a map or and atlas. Choose a place name from the map and challenge your friend/parent to see if they can find it within a couple of minutes.
If they manage it, they choose the next place.. If they don’t find it show them on the map and choose another place for them to find.
You may be surprised to find some of the names of small villages.
This is a good game to play in the car to help make the time pass on a long journey.
