๐ŸFall Inspired Natural Play Dough ๐ŸชCookie Cutter DIY Craft

Who said that ๐Ÿช cookie-cutters are just for baking? How about creating a ๐Ÿ nature-inspired craft with๐Ÿ‚ treasures we have found during our nature walks like leaves, pine cones, and acorns. And we will be using the ๐ŸŒฝ corn kernels too.

Children then enjoyed making leaves by layering play dough and drawing midribs and veins. This was a true nature-inspired invitation to create!
