Time:
20 mins
Place:
Outside
Need:
Leaves, colourful paints and paper
The perfect mix of collecting and creativity! All you need are a few leaves from the garden or local park (get lots of different shapes and sizes) as well as some paints and paper. Make an afternoon of collecting leaves in the garden – your little one will love being outside and exploring. Once you’ve collected enough, take them back inside and get creative with them!

By simply painting the back of each leaf (this side makes better prints) then pressing them onto paper, you can make some wonderful paintings together. Your little artist will love all the shapes and colours!
