Leaf Themed Artist Trading Cards - A Multi-Generational Family Friendly Craft For Thanksgiving or Fall

I love Artist Trading Cards. Their small scale makes them easy to crank out several mini 
masterpieces in one setting and it allows the artist to work with a less intimidating format to explore various media or themes with their artwork. I shared our Mark Rothko inspired ATC project with you earlier this year.

Day of the Dead Recycled Cardboard Sugar Skull Craft Project 

I've always loved art from other cultures and our home is filled with examples 
of art and instruments from around the world. My art classroom and curriculum was always filled with many different projects from many different cultures.  
This project is simple. It is low cost using recycled cardboard that you already have in your house.  
It provides an opportunity to expose your children (or students) to conversations about life and death as well as art from other cultures and different belief systems.
