Leaf Tracing – this is another fun art activity we did with our collection of leaves. Looking for some fun activities to do during the winter vacations, my son and I went on a nature hunt. We collected loads of stones, leaves, twigs, flowers and petals. First and foremost, we made a nature collage. And then, after leaving it out to dray, we moved on to leaf tracing.
Here is our collection of the various leaves from the nature hunt.
- Blank sheet of papers
- Various types of leaves
How to go about it:
1. Just keep a leaf on a plain surface and cover it with a blank sheet.
2. Now give your kid a crayon and ask her/ him to scribble on it, covering all the details.
I held the paper tightly in its place with my hand while the kiddo had fun scribbling. Once he was done with his first tracing, he repeated tracing the same leaf, with different colors on the same sheet.
You can make some more impressions, with the same/ different leaf on the same paper with different color (or same) crayons
3. Once we were done tracing the leaves, my kiddo started filling the empty spaces around the border with the corresponding colors of the leaves.
4. And, your artwork is ready! We put it up on our refrigerator.
Here are the various “paintings” we created !!
Go on and try it out with your kids! And do share your work with us in the comments section below.
