One of Kingston's favorite things about Fall are all of the leaves that seem to take over our yard. He loves finding them, examining them, and toting them around. This year, I am excited to let him jump in the piles! Recently, we made the cutest fall themed print craft inspired by this Autumn staple, Leaf Handprints! I think they are beautiful, and now want toddler-made leaf art adorning my entire house.
To make this print craft, you will need:
Brown, Gold, and Orange/Red Ink
Ink your little ones hand in each of the colors and print them on the paper. It's as simple as that! In between colors, we use baby wipes to clean off the mess.
If your little one is old enough, they can add the leaf details themselves. However, if you are doing this project with an infant or toddler, add the stem details in yourself! I actually really enjoyed doing this part.
K was really excited to make his "yeaves"! This would be an excellent activity to do with the adorable book Leaves by David Ezra Stein.
K thought he was really funny when he printed himself with the ink from one of his leaves. Oy. Crafting with a toddler is pretty hilarious!
