    I’m always looking for ideas for crafts to do with my kids at home and loved this idea! My son has an adventure themed room and loves anything outdoors style. We went to our local craft store and got good deals on card stock and made these last night. They were easy to make and needed some parental guidance with the glue gun but he loves his “jungle leaves” thanks for the easy instructions!
