Painted Autumn Leaves

 Make sure you follow my craft board on Pinterest, and don’t forget to pin the Pin at the bottom.

This craft was totally done to YC. We had hundreds of leaves left over from doing the leaf chromatography experiment the other day and YC asked if we could paint them. Why not? We did a leaf printing craft around 3 years ago, but YC simply wanted to decorate our leftover leaves. I love it when YC and EC come up with craft ideas, they are always so eager to share their ideas and see them through.

You will need:

  • Leaves
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes

The first thing you are going to need are leaves, and plenty of them. If you leave them to dry a bit then make sure you put them into a book to flatten them. Otherwise they begin to curl up, which can make it tricky to paint them.

YC and I really enjoyed doing this craft together. EC was at an after school club, so this was perfect nanny and charge bonding time. We created patterns and monsters and some we just simple painted with nothing in mind.
