You will need:
white paper (printer paper works best)
crayons - without paper labels
(can also use coins, or any other flat objects your children can come up with)
Protect your workspace if needed so as to not get leaf stains on your table.
Go outside and collect leaves.
Place the leaf under a piece of paper. Rub the crayon longways over the paper where the leaf is, you will see the pattern of the leaf emerge!
Children think its amazing and you can use the same leaf over and over with different color crayons. Make a rainbow of colors on one piece of paper or use different pieces for each color.
Cut out the prints and they make great decorations!
Or write a note on the back and send to family and friends as a card.
Have a great weekend!
Also I posted this a while back and I got such a great response I had to bring it back again:
