Let's Create!

  • Go outside and gather leaves of different shapes and sizes for this project. 

**Engage them in this process by naming the different types of leaves that they find, have them tell you which colors they find and their sizes!​

  • Once you have all of your leaves gathered, ask your child to paint each leaf.

  • Then firmly press down on the paper.

  • Carefully pick the leaf back up again. 

  • What's left will be a beautiful leafy picture!

**You can also use leaves as stamps in a sandbox especially if the sand is a little damp. Press the leaf into the sand, run your hand over the top to make sure it is pressed firmly and pick it back up. You will be able to see the outline of the leaf!
