Leaf Printing

Leaf Prints
Here is a basic but fun project to try with your little ones.  This is a great project for teaching about color, lines, shapes and textures.  And the results are so pretty and unique.  I found this project at and
So here’s what you need:
  • leaves
  • paint
  • paper
  • art tray or cookie sheet
Here’s what you do.
  1. collect different shape leaves
  2. Pour some paint on the art tray and smear it all around
  3. Paint your leaf or lay it in the paint.  Be sure to paint the entire leaf so it is completely covered.
  4. Place the leaf on clean paper and place another sheet over the top of the leaf.  Press firmly on the paper.
  5. Pull off the top paper and slowly pull off the leaf to reveal the leaf print
