GIVEAWAY! + Fall Leaf Confetti Craft Idea and Printable
The giveaway is closed now. Thanks you!
I have something super special for all mommies, kids, teachers, and everyone who loves children’s books. Last time I collaborated with Hawaiian Children’s Books we had so much fun and a great response from all of you that we decided to get together again to bring to you a craft idea inspired by one of Gill McBarnet’s illustrated books, Gecko Hide and Seek. But we also wanted to give you the opportunity to win a copy of this cute book, so here it is, a super fun giveaway!

Gecko Hide and Seek, is a really fun counting book that tells a story about some geckos who hide behind palm trees, pineapples, leaves and other beautiful vegetation. I love Gill McBarnet’s books because they made me think of Hawaii, its colors, and beautiful weather. It’s so perfect for this season because, who wouldn’t love to be in Hawaii right now? right?
Jaxon started collecting leaves a few weeks ago, so we had a big pile of them on the dining room table! They were driving me a bit crazy, I must confess. So it occurred to me that we could use them to decorate a gecko just like the ones in the book. I drew a gecko silhouette and made a printable in case you would like to use it too (download the printable below). We used a puncher and made confetti out of fall leaves. Then we glued the confetti around the gecko silhouette, counting the confetti and making numbers even more fun!
