This time of year we love to go on nature walks as a family. Our daughter loves to collect leaves, so we thought that we would make a craft with them this year that we could keep long after the leaves dry up. This leaf print craft is a simple fall craft that is best suited to the older preschool and above set. The finished leaf craft looks great hanging up as a decoration for fall.

What you'll need:

  • Fall leaves (that aren't dried out)
  • Red, yellow, orange and brown paint
  • Paint brush
  • Construction paper
How to make your Fall Leaf Print Craft:
  1. Collect a few fall leaves outside. Talk about the colors and what makes the leaves you find similar or different.
  2. Paint the back of the leaf where the veins are.
  3. Make a leaf print on some scrap paper first to remove some of the paint and then print onto your real paper.
  4. Repeat with all the leaves you collected.
