This is one of the classic art activities that we did as kids. It’s time to share the fun! You can use fallen leaves, dried leaves or fresh ones. Half the fun is collecting the leaves.
Other than your leaves, you will need 2 pieces of paper and colouring material such as crayons or a graphite block. Lay your leaves on the first sheet of paper, then put another one on top of it. Then, just start rubbing your crayon (peeled and on its side works best) or your graphite block on top of the leaves to bring out their shape and textures.
Here’s what happened with our graphite leaf rubbing:
Here’s a video of how we did it.
