Leaf Prints

Supplies: Leaves (real or silk), paint, and black paper

Process: Place paint on a plate. Have the children place the leaf face down into the paint. Push down slightly. Pick up and place onto paper. Push down lightly to "stamp" the paper. Dry. Hang in your classroom!

Teach Well: If you have a diecut machine you can place a sponge into the machine. I loved creating leaf sponges to use instead for this craft. It is easier for the children to hold and place on the paper. Thin styrofoam works well too.
