Lots of Leaves

Lots of Leaves craft

Spark a child's creativity and interest in science by using a real leaf as a pattern to draw a pile of leaves, no matter what the season.

  • 1.

    Choose a leaf. Carefully trace around your leaf onto the paper using Crayola® Markers.

  • 2.

    When you're finished tracing, move the leaf so it overlaps part of the first drawing, and trace the entire leaf again. Repeat this several times until you have an interesting collection of overlapping leaves.

  • 3.

    Color each section created by the overlapping lines differently. Use as many colors as you want or use nature's colors to make a more realistic pile of leaves. Jump in and have fun.
