Leaf Rubbing with Crayons
Crayon rubbing is the perfect indoor art activity for autumn or even early winter. Make a day of picking out fallen leaves of different shapes and sizes. Younger kids would appreciate the adventure of just finding leaves while older ones can make a day of it classifying the leaves.
What You Need:
- Different leaves – fresh or dried should both work
- Two pieces of paper
What To Do:
- Tape the leaves on a piece of paper. Use just a bit of tape as these can show in the rubbings
- Put one paper on top of the other such that the leaves are sandwiched in between the two pieces
- Rub the paper with the side of the crayon and watch the leaves magically come alive.
