These leaf print paintings are a fabulous sensory experience that can be used to review colors, talk about Fall, and create art!
- leaves (go outside and let your kiddos find the perfect leaves!)
- paint (we used Fall colors: red, yellow, and brown)
- paint tin or paper plate
- paint brushes
1- Put a squirt of each paint color in the tin or plate.
2- Show your children how to make a leaf print. Invite them to create a masterpiece!
I love how some of the children glued their leaves to the picture with paint and others worked on a design they had in mind.
In the end, even their plates looked like art works!
This activity works great by itself, or you can tie in a discussion about seasons and why leaves change colors!
Do you have "Fall" leaves? Our over-night lows are just getting down in to the 70-degree range, and it is so fun! Enjoy your Fall crafts!
