Autumn leaves craft

My kids have been very interested by the leaves falling. I have been explaining why some trees don’t lose their leaves and why others do. They enjoy pointing out the autumn trees to me.
Yesterday during our black out I read “dragon’s leaf collection” but actually Alexander and I read it together as it is an early reader. In the story dragon collects the falling leaves but ends up with so many he has no where to put them. He writes a letter to the trees to say stop losing your leaves. He then discovers all the trees have no leaves and he ends up tying the leaves back onto the trees.
We have been collecting some leaves and today we decided to make pictures with them. In one we even stuck some string pretending we were like dragon tying the leaves back on.

Alexander did a picture with a deciduous tree and one with an evergreen. The other two pictures are by Emily and I. I wonder which is which?
Emily’s favourite bit is applying and reapplying glue.
