Capture nature's spirit by creating a leaf-print picture frame. Gold Crayola® Premier™ Tempera creates a dazzling gift to hold a favorite photo or nature collage.
During a unit of study focused on the seasons, ask students to collect fallen plant and tree leaves outdoors. Encourage them to select only those that are safe to handle. Students wash their hands upon returning from their leaf collection.
Working in small groups, students research the life cycle of leaves. Find out why leaves are important to the natural environment, both while they are on the plant and after they have fallen. Students identify all the leaves that were collected.
Share with the class that they will be creating a picture frame with a leaf motif. Students begin this activity by cutting out the middle of a large piece of cardboard using Crayola Scissors.
Students cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Paint the frame with gold Crayola Premier Tempera Paint. Dry.
Suggest to students that they brush the underside of a leaf with a contrasting color of Crayola Tempera. Press the painted sides down around the opening. Repeat. Use your imagination to create a unique leaf design. Dry.
To create a frame backing, students attach their photos or artwork to cardboard with a Crayola Glue Stick. A nature collage would be a perfect complement! Glue the cardboard to the back of the frame.
