Leaf Printing

A few weeks ago, the boys and I went on the leaf hunt with some friends. We met at a park and collected as many different types of leaves as possible. 

The next day, we gathered our supplies together for printing:

-various leaves
- white paper
- fall colored crayon colors
-something hard to work on {we used a plastic plate}

Place a leaf under the paper and lightly color the paper so that the leaf lines show up

We found that the pine tree needles didn't really show up, but the prints should look something like this...

But if you have a toddler, it'll look more like this:

We did learn a few tree species like oak, gum and Japanese maple! So it'd say it was a success! ;)
