We’re exploring seasonal changes in nature! Our friend, Katherine Lampert, is back to show us how to make leaf lanterns on today’s episode of Curious By Nature. We want to see your leaf lanterns, too! Share your creations, photos, and discoveries with us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
Then, keep exploring fall plants and colors with the activities and videos below!
Katherine found some cool autumn leaves for her leaf lanterns. Let’s use some of those objects to make a nature rubbing art project! The textures of natural objects found during the fall season can make very different patterns. Take a closer look by making your own fall texture rubbing. Click here to download the directions, and be sure to share your finished rubbings with us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
It’s not just the leaves on the trees that are showcasing some beautiful fall colors. Our manager of horticulture, Seth, is taking a closer look at goldenrod in this edition of Growin’ on the Grounds. Click here to watch it. Have questions about goldenrod or other fall plants?
