PAPER FALL LEAVES
We are all about simple kids crafts. While we love creating some more complex things like our dinosaur lantern jars, we really do have a love for simple things like handprint art. Do you remember our Jellyfish Art or maybe even our colorful and sequin studded Butterflies? These little leaf characters are a fun and festive addition for the Fall season.

SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR PAPER FALL LEAVES ACTIVITY:
- Cardstock Paper, in your desired colors
- Googly eyes, whatever size you like! We used small in our pictures and a bit larger in our video 🙂 You decide what look you like best!
- Pipe Cleaner, we used these to add a smile. You can also just draw on a smile but we liked the added texture.
- Black Sharpie Marker, used to make the leaf veins
- Glue – Elmers glue works great but often times I use hot glue on parts of my daughters crafts so they last a little longer but remember only adults should use it!
HOW TO MAKE PAPER FALL LEAVES
- Begin by tracing your child’s hand and cut out three handprints, in your desired leaf colors. Have a wiggly worm? You can easily find many handprint templates online that you can use as your base instead 🙂
- Glue your handprints on a larger piece of paper. We like to use 12 in. x 12 in. card stock paper for many of our kids crafts.
- Using a permanent marker draw leaf veins on your handprints. We used the fingers as our guidelines.
- Add googly eyes and a glue on a black pipe cleaner smile.
