Last week, we made fall leaf crafts for kids: coffee filter suncatchers and sponge painted leaves.
Color coffee filters with markers.
Place them on a baking sheet or some other kind of surface that you don’t mind marker water to get all over. Spray with water.
When dry, make leaf shapes from them. I used these leaf templates which I cut out and then traced onto the coffee filters.
Here are the finished suncatchers before hanging them in the window. They turned out very colorful and pretty! (I couldn’t get a good photo of them hanging in the window)
Sponge Painted Leaves
I kept the outer part of the leaves I cut for the above suncatcher craft because it made a nice stencil. My son picked 2 of them which I taped to a piece of paper. I gave him a sponge and a plate with small blobs of paint on it in fall colors. Make sure you have the child blot off the excess paint onto another sheet of paper before dabbing them inside the leaves.
