We went for a long walk recently and we came home with a lot of autumn leaves, pine cones, pine needles, acorns, etc. When I asked my daughter what she was going to do with all these treasures, she said: “We were in the forest, so we will make a forest house!”. And we did it!
Since we came to Canada 3 years ago, we have been living a true, local Thanksgiving celebration. Living in France before, we only heard about Thanksgiving and saw it on TV. So we wanted to make the most out of being here in North America.

As a child I used to make rowanberry necklaces at the end of summer holidays and in the beginning of the school year. My school was 10min walking distance from my house and I always walked through a park where there were a lot of rowan trees giving beautiful red berries. When I told my daughter that she could make ‘things’ from these beautiful red rowan berries, she couldn’t wait to start her own project!
Last weekend we started to clean up our backyard from all the leaves that has fallen. There were a lot of them as we had a few windy days just before. At one point of time, my daughter said: “Mom, what are we going to do with all these leaves?!?” I said, that we can think of something and asked her to select some of the most beautiful leaves. See what we did :)
This felt necklace for toddlers is inspired from a DIY book with a suppliers box, that my daughter received from her Dad. He brought it from his trip to France and it is called ” Je crée des bijoux du monde”, which means “I create jewelry of the world”. It is really a great discovery kit for little girls, however some mom’s help is needed for the little ones. For our first project, my daughter chose a cute and colorful felt necklace.
