  Largest maple leaf-world record set by Hailey Nickolson
  WINDSOR, Ont., USA -- While walking home with her aunt (Christine Nickolson), 10-year-old Hailey Nickolson discovered a leaf which has a span of 34 centimetres, a body height of 23 centimetres and an overall height of 46 centimetres-which sets the world record for the Largest maple leaf.

 The two were returning from shopping on Wyandotte Street East when Hailey, a Grade 4 student at Hetherington public school, noticed the world's Largest maple leaf on the ground.

   “I was really excited,” said Hailey. “It’s bigger than my face and bigger than my hand.”

   Hailey, the youngest of three in her family, and her two older brothers, Dylan and Daniel, helped to research record holding leaves and ways to preserve them.

   “Dylan had a friend whose grandmother was really into crafts and she suggested the spray-on shellac,” said her aunt Christine Nickolson.

   Nickolson said people often don’t believe her when she tells them of the discovery. “You kind of have to see it to believe it,” said Nickolson. “There has been skepticism but once people see it, their eyes just open right up.”

   The Nickolsons plan on eventually separating the shellacked leaf from its saran wrap backing to frame it.
   “It would be nice to frame and donate to the school (Hetherington public school) for the kids to enjoy and look at,” said Nickolson.
