I love this time of year when the leaves are all changing colour – it is so dramatic! Now that we’ve moved to a forest location it is just spectacular! My son and I celebrated this by making three different kinds of leaf art.

We started by collecting a whole bunch of different leaves.Easy Leaf Art for Kids

The first art we tried was the classic leaf rubbing activity. I surprised F by hiding the leaves under the paper , taping it down and giving him the crayons.

Next we used dot markers. I taped the leaves to some card and then we made dots all the way around each leaf. We used a combination of regular dot markers and shimmer dot markers. Easy Leaf Art for Kids

And the final leaf art was also my favourite! Similar to the dot marker art, I taped down the leaves and then we used sponges and paint to go around the outline. We used a paper plate as a handy disposable paint palette!
