Leaf craft idea for kids
Leaf haired girl
Suzan was found in the forest by the people who live in the forest village. She was a normal person when she was a child, but her hairs weren’t. Her hair was like leaves. It was a different and pretty feature according to the other people, but the problem was that her hair was changing season by season.
For example, it was green in spring and summer and it was yellow in autumn.
Suzan wondered the reason and went near the old wise. She asked the reason and the wise started to explain. Three factors influence autumn leaf color-leaf pigments, length of night, and weather, but not quite in the way we think. The timing of color change and leaf fall are primarily regulated by the calendar, that is, the increasing length of night.
None of the other environmental influences-temperature, rainfall, food supply, and so on-are as unvarying as the steadily increasing length of night during autumn. As days grow shorter, and nights grow longer and cooler, biochemical processes in the leaf begin to paint the landscape with Nature’s autumn palette.
Don’t be unhappy. You are our pretty girl with your leaf hair. You are a forest child and you have a feature from the forest. Do not lose it. Because you belong here.
You can draw a girl with leaf hair. You can glue leaves to her hair.
