Leafy Art

One thing that I love about fall are the color changing leaves!  I used to hate raking the leaves, but now I kind of enjoy it it with the fresh air and smells and my rubber galoshes.

With leaves comes leaf art! And yes, if you don't leave a breath between saying leaf and art, it sounds like you said fart. I know you all just said it really fast to hear it! Lol.

Last year I subbed in a class that did wax leaves. My post last year talked about it.

Another post last year was with about kindergartners and me reading Fresh Fall Leaves. I free handed some leaves for them to color.

One of my favorite books to read is Leaf Man by Lois Elhert.

I haven't had the opportunity to make leaf people yet, but the class I was in on Friday were finishing leaf art for parent conferences this week.

First they picked a leaf shape and colored it.

Then they glued yarn around the ends. Don't you love how the green leaf has 'moldy' brown parts?

  1. They are all so cool! Love the yarn around the edges of the ones your kiddos did this week! I bet they will be a hit at the parent conference!!
