I really love the month of November. It feels like a quite moment just before the busy bustling of the winter holidays start up. My daughters and I made a very simple little banner to welcome November. We started by gathering many leaves and then turning them face down on the table where we would be laying the cloth. I then cut a piece of white muslin (size is unimportant, just whatever works best for your space) and layed it over the leaves, making sure there was a leaf under every bit of it. I chose not to hem my cloth but you could if you wanted to.
We took our crayons rocks (though, you could also use block crayons or stick crayons, paper removed and rub the side) and lightly rubbed over the entire piece. I did have to remind them not to use the tip and not too rub too hard. It was also very pretty to layer the colors a bit.
