We saw this how to make fall leaves on Pinterest, and thought we’d try it out ourselves. Hads loved it! She is still asking me if we can make more.
First I have to apologize, during the video our camera turned off and I didn’t notice. So, there’s a small jump in between drawing the leaves and painting the leaves. The only thing we missed was cutting out the leaves, and us explaining the sponges.
Sponges are a great tool to paint with, especially for this project and especially for kids. To me sponges are the next step up from finger painting, but still aren’t quite paintbrushes. Not to mention they are extremely easy to clean, and give a perfect fall leaf texture.
