Little Growers Activity: Leaf Etching
20 Oct, 2020
This is a very simple activity kids can try at home. It is great for making cards and pictures – and half the fun is going outside and finding some funky looking leaves!
What you will need:
Leaves of all shapes and sizes
How you do it:
- Find lots of different shaped leaves. Dried or thin leaves are easier to use.
- Place your leaf on a hard surface (a table or desk) and put the piece of paper over the leaf.
- Take the paper coverings off a few crayons, and rub the length of the crayon over the paper. This will create an etching of your leaf underneath.
- Use different colours for interest! Cut the leaves out and use to make cards or pictures.
