Changing leaves falling from the trees during the autumn months inspired this craft for kids. Children can create their own colorful leaves out of paper and use them as decorations to brighten up any window in their home. The best part is that these leaves will not dry out.
For this project you will need:
- color translucent paper in red, orange, yellow and brown - black construction paper - scissors - glue - clear contact paper
1. Print out your pattern to a size you like or to fit your paper. Transfer the pattern to the black construction paper. You will need 2 sides for each leaf (one should be in reverse). First cut the insides out and then the outside shape. 2. Tear out randomly shaped pieces out of the 4 different colors of translucent paper and then follow the instructions in the link below to learn how to adhere the tissue paper pieces to the leaves.
