Leaf Printing

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:

Materials Leaf Painting

  • Paint of your choice, I diluted ours with a little water.
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper
  • 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.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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

  3. 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. 🙂
