Creating easy fall leaves painting with kids

I absolutely love autumn, and the leaves changing colour. So when we went for our walk this week we decided to collect some different leaves, in order to create some fall leaves painting.

Collecting leaves for arts and craft project

We tried to collect as many different leaves and colours as we could find from our walk.

What you will need for your fall leaves painting:

Different shape and colour leaves

Coloured paper



Coloured Crayons


Autumnal Leaves for art project - fall leaves painting

First of all we decided to draw round the outline of the leaves with a sharpie. Check out the tongue out!! Definite concentration here.

I let Freddie decide on how to decorate them. Now Freddie has only recently started enjoying arts and crafts. In fact only since we have been homeschooling.

If you are homeschooling check out over 80 free or cheap online resources that will help you home educate.

The green leaf he decided to place the leaf at the back of the picture and gently rubbed it to get the detail of the leaf underneath.

The orange leaf he created with finger painting, and while wet he used a pencil to create the detail.

The others he wanted to colour as brightly as possible!

The next thing we did was draw round Freddie’s hand and arm to create the tree shape.

We then used some glue to stick the smaller leaves to the branches.

With white glittery paint he added finger prints to the tree and branches. To be fair if we had brown finger paint we would have used that instead!! I think we will be adding more paint to his Christmas List!

The next project was to create a pretty picture with the leaves.

The last project was drawing around the leaf with a sharpie and draw the lines from the leaf onto the picture.

    We love to work with leaves, especially in autumn when you have so many colours to use. #KCACOLS.

    These are so lovely. I especially like the colourful leaves. Crafts with leaves is always so pretty and the sharpies are very effective. Our 9yo has done some lovely crafting in the past. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time!
