Pressing Autumn Leaves

Fallen leaves cover the ground during October. Try to find as many

different leaves as you can. Press the leaves under something big and

heavy for 2-3 days, then stick them on to a piece of paper. You can

use clear sticky-back plastic to fix them into position. Then write the

details about the tree from which the leaf came.
