Frugal Fall Kid’s Craft: Leaf Painting

Here’s one more nature inspired craft for fall!  After you take your nature walk, you  can use some of your leaves to make a painting!

Painted Leaf Prints


  • Paper
  • Paint and paintbrush
  • Fresh Leaves


  • Paint one side of your leaves
  • Lay painted side up on a piece of paper
  • Cover with another sheet of paper and press down and rub**
  • Lift up paper to reveal your painting!

**I found this easier to do with little hands than trying to get him to turn the leaves over and press onto the paper**

Check out our other Fall Leaf Craft!

Make it more educational:

Talk about what colors the leaves change to when the season changes to fall.  Use only those colors on your picture.

Find a fall book to read.  One of my favorites is The Acorn and the Oak Tree.  Use it to discuss how the seasons change.
