Autumn Leaf Print Placemats

Bring the beauty of fall indoors with these easy to make, leaf-printed placemats. The kids will have a ball making these.

Approximate Time Less than 1 hour

Supplies:

  • construction paper
  • acrylic paint
  • paint brushes
  • fresh leaves
  • old toothbrush

Instructions:

  1. Collect some fresh leaves from trees in your yard. They won't crumble as easily as those found on the ground.
  2. Lightly paint the back of a leaf with acrylic paint, then press onto the construction paper.
  3. Add more than one color of paint to each leaf to resemble autumn leaves.
  4. Next, dip the end of an old toothbrush in some acrylic paint. Pull back on the end of the toothbrush with your thumb to spatter the paper with dots of paint. (You will probably want to do this outside or put the placemat inside a box to keep from spattering your clothes or counter top!)
  5. Ad

  6. Ask each child to write his/her name on the corner of the placemat.
  7. Once dry, laminate with clear contact paper so they can be used over and over again.
