How to do a leaf painting activity ..
There’s really not much to it and it is so easy to put together, yay! 🙂
I will show you how easy this is to put together:
Here are the steps we took for this painting leaves activity:
Lay out a paper roll onto a table.
Then, add tempera paint to a plate and set those on the table.
Attach a clothespin to each of the faux leaves.
Dip the faux leaf clothespin onto the paint in the plate and dab it onto the white paper roll!
You can even go as far as drawing a tree trunk beforehand and your LO can dab on leaves on the drawn out tree trunk!
How fun is that?
Toddlers painting with nature
Where we live there aren’t many Fall leaves outdoors, so the next best thing are faux leaves which are really neat!
But, if you do happen to live in a place that has fallen leaves, then those would also work really well as leaf paintings!
Painting of leaves can be brought forth in so many ways and can be so much fun. Here are some Autumn Painting Ideas:

Another fun way to create a fall painting with leaves is to use pom poms with a clothespin in place of a leaf.
Pom poms and cotton balls are also a really neat DIY tool for using for crafts such as leaves painting crafts or any fall painting ideas.
