Autumn is the season of colour and leaves. This craft is an exploration of Autumn colours and my little lovely adored mixing the paints to match the shades of our leaves; experimenting with different ratios of paint to create a range of unusual colours.

We spent time outside collecting leaves, looking at the trees to observe the seasonal change – A lovely activity in itself!

This Autumn leaf painting is designed to be simple yet effective and most of all lots and lots of fun!

Materials used for the Autumn Leaf Painting:

Menu

We mixed five different colours onto plates and cut up a bath sponge, dividing the pieces between the plates.

Place the first leaf onto the paper and using a sponge with a small amount of paint, begin dabbing around the leaf. Encourage your crafty kid to change and layer the colours as they work around the leaf.

Once complete, remove the leaf to reveal the silhouette.

To add another dimension, we applied paint to a smaller leaf to create a print within our silhouette.

Not only are we capturing the colours in this craft, but printing with our leaves to explore their intricate forms.

Menu

Build the picture up with more leaves, using different shapes and sizes.

To complete the Autumn leaf painting, fill in the gaps between the leaves by dabbing more paint with the sponge, continuing to use the full range of colours and layering.

All that’s left is for your crafty kids to admire their gorgeous Autumn leaf painting masterpiece!
