Use these simple yet creative Ideas to watch Autumn in its wonder with leaf craft ideas for kids!
If we want to make something with colours and pictures around us, and what is a better way to deal with craft this fall than with Autumn leaves?
Most of these leaf craft requires the leaves without any cuts, fresh, straight off the tree or nearly fallen on the ground. While others require leaves that are crushed and dried first.
Fall Leaf Craft Ideas for kids
- Autumn leaves- pressed, fresh and dried.
- Metallic/coloured markers
- Sheets of your choice
- Artificial eyes
Leaf Drawing and Doodling
- After we collected the leaves we’ve been pressing and drying.
- Decide the faces/expressions that you need to draw on each one of them on a rough sheet of paper to get an idea.
- Now directly draw, form, and doodle on them with your choice of colours. Black would be preferable.
- The leaves are simple yet beautiful and look Super Cute!
