Fall is a great time to find creative things to do with leaves. When we were kids, we'd rake them and jump into them. What can we do now?  Today on the Top 5 at 7:45, I'll highlight some things that we can do with those pretty orange, yellow and red leaves around Cheyenne.

  1. Dried Leaf Art - You can gather a bunch of leaves and craft a leaf or animals on a board. It's a very decorative piece for this time of year.
  2. Insulation - If you are out in the woods and start to get cold, you can stuff leaves in your jacket arms, pants and shirt for warmth.
  3. Rake A Pile And JUMP - This is an old time favorite. Just make sure if you do this, you instruct your kids to jump feet first and not head first. A broken neck would take the fun right out of this.
  4. Use As A Stencil - Place different types of leaves behind a sheet of paper and take a colored pencil and highlight the leaf on the paper.
  5. Candle Holders - You can glue leaves on the outside of a mason jar and place a candle inside. This makes for a very nice centerpiece for any occasion.

The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays with me, Gary Freeman and sponsored by First Education Federal Credit Union.
