Happy Autumn!

Here’s a fun activity to do and incorporate some creative writing.

What you Need:  a tree leaf, paint, paper, pen, scissors, paint brush, 1 piece of construction paper

Fall Leaf Prints

1. Collect a leaf from a tree.

2. Paint the back of the leaf with a fall color. We only painted halfway down the stem in order to have a dry handle.

3. Set it on the paper, and hold it down. Lift it carefully. Paint the leaf for each print. We were trying to make a wreath.

4. Let it dry. Meanwhile, have your child describe autumn.

5. When dry, write a poem in the middle of the wreath. Cut around the leaves. Frame it with another piece of colored construction paper.
