Daisy (aged 2) and Harry (aged 5) both loved this quick and simple craft.  We have an ever growing collection of nature in our house so we thought we would put a few of the leaves to good use. I printed off the hedgehog colouring pages and gave them to the children along with brown crayons, their collection of leaves and some glue.  Then I invited them to get creative.

Daisy didn't end up with many spikes on her hedgehog as she kept gluing them on and then pulling them back off, but she had the best time doing it, which is definitely the most important part!

Harry worked really hard on his hedgehog and he was really proud of it.  He coloured his hedgehog brown and added leaves around the edge as spikes.

This craft was perfect for filling in a bit of time after school and both of the children really enjoyed it.
