Leaf Prints
(photo above)
Supplies Needed:

Construction paper
Non toxic paint
Paint brush

Collect leaves from your backyard and glue the leaves onto a sheet of cardboard. Allow them to dry completely. Pour a small amount of paint onto a plate and use a paintbrush and paint the leaves different colors. Try using Autumn colors of red, yellow and orange. Lay a piece of green or black construction paper over the painted leaves and rub back and forth over the paper with your hand. Lift the paper to see your leaf print.Tip: Tell your child to not put too much paint on the leaves or the leaf design won't show through as well. Choose leaves with prominent veins.

Aluminum Foil Leaves

Supplies Needed:
Pieces of aluminum foil
Leaves with prominent veins
Construction paper

Set pieces of aluminum foil and a variety of fall leaves in front of your child. Let them select different leaves and place each of them under a piece of foil. Gently press and rub the foil with their hand to get a leaf print. Then cut out the shape and glue the leaf prints to the construction paper. Even though the photo doesn't show it as well, these turn out quite good.

Colored construction paper

Craft tip:
An empty styrofoam or plastic egg carton makes a great container for holding a variety and number of paint colors. After your child is done painting and there is paint left over, simply cover with saran wrap or plastic wrap to keep paint from drying out until ready to use next time.
