You know the time of year! The leaves are falling from the trees and the temperature has started to cool down! Yes, even in Texas this happens, although it is still rather warm here for November (but hey, I am not complaining.) Nothing is better then getting out with your kids and family and looking at God’s beauty all around you! My kids wanted to go on a bike ride so I thought this would be a great opportunity to get out and collect some leaves and make an Easy Fall Leaf Collage Art Project with them, so easy, anyone can do!
The best part is this Easy Fall Leaf Collage Art Project is basically free using items you already probably have at home! Here is what you will need! Of course, you can get creative and add any supplies you want to the mix!
- Construction Paper
Head outside and round up your leaves
The kids hopped on their bikes so they could use their baskets to scoop up their leaves and we headed out! I am all about letting them burn off some of that energy so they will be ready for bed! We have trails behind our neighborhood with some nice trees that are perfect for exploring. Visit your neighborhood park, take a walk or even gather leaves in your own backyard so that you can do your fall leaf art project!
During our walk we talked about the parts of the tree and why leaves change colors. They were filled with questions about the changing of seasons and what kind of trees we were looking at. We felt and smelled the leaves and even rolled around in them for some sensory play! Enjoying each other’s company and learning about the leaves was the best part of my day!
How to Make your Leaf Art Project
This is where your kids creative juices can come alive! Pick a color of construction paper, get out the glue and make some designs and/or collages on your paper.
We did hearts and smiley faces since my girls are totally in to emojis right now! You can use the whole leaf or tear them up in little pieces. Whatever you want to do! The sky is the limit on the type of designs you can use with your glue. Some suggestions include a tree, flowers, stick people, shapes and animals.
Take your crayons or markers and add the finishing touches to your fall leaf art project! Our Easy Fall Leaf Collage Art Projects are proudly displayed on the refrigerator for all to see!
So easy and fun that anyone can do it!
Happy Fall and crafting Y’all!
