Fall has arrived! Now you can enjoy some fun crafts with the kids and decorate for the season! We love a good DIY project and we have one that will take you back to your own childhood. We found this craft on Edventures.
Leaf rubbing is a fun way to bring the bold colors of Fall into your home. Kids love doing this sort of thing and We love it too;) It’s a nice inexpensive way to do a craft and get outside for a bit too. The kids will have fun picking out the perfect leaves for their project.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- Wax paper
- Parchment paper
- Tracing paper
- Aluminum foil
- Oil Pastel Sticks
- Colored pencils
- A few large size leaves
Feel free to mix and match your papers and drawing supplies in any way you’d like to for the project. For example, you might use oil pastels with all three types of paper to examine how the leaf print looks different based on the type of paper. Or you could use all three drawing tools (crayons, oil pastels and colored pencils) on one paper to create a more textured leaf print.
The last piece to this fun craft is hanging your leaf rubbing for all to see! Yay Fall!
