The science of leaves, leaf parts, and why leaves change colors leaves an impression on students as they create realistic leaf impressions.
Find out why leaves change color in temperate climates in the fall. What weather conditions are necessary? Why do colors vary, even within a single leaf? Collect safe, fallen leaves that are still pliable.
Form a tennis-ball sized piece of Crayola® Model Magic® into a circle with the heel of your hand, or roll it with a dowel stick. Make it consistently thick, round, and smooth (use a damp finger).
Firmly press the back of a leaf into the modeling compound to make a deep impression. Use a craft stick or other modeling tool to add definition if necessary. With a dowel stick, poke a hole in the top of the compound so it can be hung. Dry 24 hours.
Cover your work area with recycled newspaper. Experiment with Crayola Washable Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes to match leaf colors on the impression. Paint the background a contrasting color. Highlight veins with lighter or darker hues. Dry overnight.
