Leaf Dance Painting

Leaf Dance Painting craft

Choreograph your own leaf dance with this lively project that creates the illusion of blowing wind!

  • 1.

    Draw leaves on construction paper with Crayola® Markers or Crayons. Or gather fallen leaves from outside and trace them. (Wash hands thoroughly afterward.) Draw veins and other designs on the leaves.

  • 2.

    Cut out leaves with Crayola Scissors.

  • 3.

    Spread newspaper over your craft area. Dip your finger tips in Crayola Washable Finger Paint. Spread the paint in swirling motions--like the wind--over white construction paper. Wash hands.

  • 4.

    While the paint is still wet, place leaves on the paper. Arrange them in different directions so they appear to be blowing in the wind. Leaves stick to the paper when the paint dries.

  • 5.

    For more fun: Look at leaf patterns in a science book or collect real leaves. Draw different examples such as maple, beech, and oak. Use red, brown, orange, and yellow paper to make leaves for an autumn scene.
