Make an Autumn Leaf Lantern

Here is a fun activity you can do with your children this Autumn! All you need is some Autumn leaves and a clean jam jar.

  1. First you must press your leaves: Fold a sheet of paper and lay out your leaves on one half of the unfolded paper. Make sure that they are not overlapping.
  2. Fold the paper over to cover the flowers and leaves.
  3. Place the folded sheets between a few heavy books and leave somewhere warm and dry for 7-10 days.
  4. Once the leaves are ready, glue them to the outside of your jam jar. Finally add a tea light to create a beautiful Autumn Lantern!
