    I am so glad you showed this. I would never have thought to try such an experiment, and I love it.

    I’ve done the leaf thing with the photo sensitive paper, but never thought of doing this. Will have to let Sister S know about it too. Love how you caught the daddy long leg in the second picture as it made it more outdoorsy. :) xxoo

    This is amazing. After reading this, my kids are begging for us to do it. We will have to wit until next year though, there are no more leaves left!

    Wow! What a great idea. I love the results. And, that red leaf is probably the most brilliant red leaf I’ve ever seen. Just beautiful. Fun idea!

    This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I am impressed that the stickers stayed on so long, too!

    very cool.

    And we finally found some poke-berries just yesterday! I was super excited after finding many look alike berries with no colors.

    That is absolutely fascinating!

    I tried to find the acorn jewelry posting but the link lead me nowhere. I would love to see it. I have to come up with a nature craft for a Halloween party this week. Thanks! Beth

    Very cool idea!

    Wow, that is pretty interesting. I never would have expected the colors to change so radically in the uncovered areas versus the covered ones! It is similar to a photosynthesis experiment we did with photo-sensitive paper.
