We spent the evening at the park after dinner. Daddy and Kuya played basketball while we took a stroll. LittleMiss noticed the fallen leaves and flowers on the grass and asked if we can take them home.
“Ahhh, it’s so cute Mama.”
She was stroking the leaves and took notice of it’s bones (I don’t know the proper name), and that there was something different from each leaf. One of them was small and yellow while the other one was big and green. We slept with her nature stash from the park that night, I managed to save two leaves and turn them to art.
Materials that you need:
- Paint of your choice, I diluted ours with a little water.
- Assorted Leaves
Wash your leaves to make sure they don’t have bugs or soil stuck in them, pat to dry. Ask your child to choose the colors she’d like, LittleMiss choose the paint above because it was the same as the leaves she had. Brush the rough part of the leaf with paint and start printing.
and here’s our final art work, the one on plate was for Kuya and the other one for Daddy.
You can’t beat a great nature craft! Isn’t it amazing what children notice, given time to just consider and contemplate their surroundings? Beautiful creations 🙂
Yes, children have this beautiful way of reminding us to notice little details. Thank you for dropping by.
Looks like fun, we should try it some time! #letkidsbekids
Yes we should, and maybe do it in the park.
Leaf painting is such a great activity. Yours turned out much better than ours when we tried it. I think your more watery paint works best. Lovely pictures.
Thanks for sharing #LetKidsBeKids
Thank you! I thought of adding water because we are running out of paint 🙂 I guess that was a lucky decision.
These look really lovely – I think we’ll definitely be doing these soon as it’s Autumn where I live.
Ohh we have not experience real autumn yet, I’m sure it’s prettier compared to those we see in the photos. Thank you for dropping by.
Leaf printing is always a hoot for the little ones, really is a fantastic arts and crafts, we love them too especially in the autumn. Your Little Miss and Kuya is definitely having fun. 🙂
I love these, such a simple idea but such great results.
