Leaf Impressions

ages 2-5


Leaves, tracing paper, crayons

Activity Detail

Next time you're out walking with your kids, collect leaves of different shapes and sizes. After you get home, help your child to place leaves between 2 sheets of tracing paper; then paper clip or tape the papers together. To create the leaf impression, let your child rub an unwrapped crayon over the paper. Once finished, disassemble the papers and discard the leaves. You now have a beautiful work of art to hang on the fridge!

What a neat way to decorate for fall! We're going to use these leaves as part of a family tree that we're building.
