Something Special ~ Falling Leaves Craft

Falling Leaves Craft

I went searching for another fall craft I could “handle” and found this adorable Falling Leaves Craft from No Time for Flashcards.

I made a simple leaf printable {which you can download here if you are artistically impaired like I am} and printed it on white cardstock.  I think I would have used a fall color as a base if I could reprint, the white is a bit…well, white.  But it does show their painting well.IMG_9507

The kids used a few different painting tools and enjoyed mixing up the fall colors.IMG_9518

I loved allowing them the freedom to mix and explore…or you know, make a mess. ;-) IMG_9512

Ladybug used dot paint for hers, and I also let her explore with the porcupine painters from Oriental Trading!IMG_9502

They also painted their spirals {which I drew ahead of time} and then I let everything dry before cutting it out and assembling them later in the day.  I then found the perfect spot for each craft and proudly displayed their falling leaves. The kids were really excited to see their creations swirling around!!!
