Autumnal Leaves for art project - fall leaves painting

First of all, we decided to draw around the outline of the leaves with a sharpie. Check out the tongue!! The absolute concentration here.

leaf craft activities with kids

I let my son decide how to decorate them. He has only recently started enjoying arts and crafts. In fact only since we have been homeschooling. Check out our recent post on our favorite homeschool art curriculum, it has certainly helped.

With the green leaf, he decided to place the leaf at the back of the picture and gently rubbed it to get the detail of the leaf underneath.

The orange leaf he created with finger painting, and while wet he used a pencil to create the detail.

The others he wanted to color as brightly as possible!

leaf drawing and colouring in

The next thing we did was draw around my son’s hand and arm to create the tree shape.

When they have completed this why not create their own tree handprint too?

We then used some glue to stick the smaller leaves to the branches.

With white glittery paint, he added fingerprints to the tree and branches. To be fair if we had brown finger paint we would have used that instead!!

I think we will be adding more paint to his Christmas gift list!
