Autumn is that time of the year when we get obsessed with leaves. Every day we go for a walk and bring home piles of leaves. We organize them by color, shape or variety. We play “store” with them (with real money!). We eat them (well, some of us, anyway). We also love doing projects with them. Leaf stencil is a nice project because kids can do it on their own and then we can use their work as postcards and send them to friends and family.
What you need
1. Place a leaf on paper.
2. Stick a sponge into water, squeeze the water out, then dab the sponge into the paint (we picked autumn colors).
3. Dab the sponge around the edges of the leaf on the paper to create the stencil
4. Lift the leaf and allow to dry
5. We cut the paper out and glued it to a folded green paper.
