How to make a hedgehog out of leaves

We found this fantastic Autumn activity on Netmums and thought we would share it with you…

This leafy hedgehog is so quick and easy to make a lovely way to use all the leaves you have gathered on an autumn walk.

You will need:

  • Card and pen
  • Autumn leaves
  • Glue

How to make your leafy hedgehog

  1. On a piece of card draw the outline of a hedgehog and add details to his face.
  2. Carefully cut out the hedgehog and glue to a piece of card or paper. We chose a lovely autumnal background.
  3. Gather your brown leaves and start sticking them on the hedgehog's body. Overlap the leaves as you stick them down.
  4. Carry on adding leaves until the whole body is covered and you are happy with your finished hedgehog.
