Today is the last day of my 10 day series on fun fall leaf craft activities for kids! These 10 days I’ve incorporated the fall leaf theme- alot! Today is no exception 🙂 So, here’s yet another fall leaf craft your kids can enjoy. This time I’m doing fall leaf decor, an easy leaf craft for kids.
What You’ll Need:
- a leaf printable (you can find free leaf printables online)
- watercolor paints
- coffee filters
- hole punch
What To Do:
Print out a few leaf patterns and have your child trace them onto the coffee filters. Cut them out and set them aside for painting.
Next, break out your beautiful watercolors and watch your kids enjoy painting the leaves. They can take their time and paint to their heart’s content. Any colors will work- although I set aside fall-ish color paints.
Once painted, set the fall leaf craft aside to dry. With coffee filters it really doesn’t take long to dry at all.
Once dry, hole punch your leaves and string them on to a long string. You can decorate your home with this if you like. My daughter likes to place hangings on her walls and around her room, so her artwork and crafts often get displayed. It makes her feel special knowing that we appreciate viewing her crafts enough to let her have the freedom to display them.
Let me know what you think about this fall leaf craft. Easy enough, right? I especially like working with coffee filters because they are both inexpensive and super flexible to use. Then when you paint on them with watercolors, the colors spread so beautifully throughout the coffee filter. You could use coffee filters for a number of different art projects and obtain beautiful results.
Again, please let me know how this craft works out for you if you end up trying it at home.
