These gorgeous leaves are super easy to make and make lovely homemade fall/ autumn decorations.
Then colour the leaf. We used autumnal (fall) colours to fit in with the season but you could use what ever colour you like.
The Fairy colouring.
Next you spray (we used a well cleaned out bottle to hold the water). Using the spray is great for encouraging motor control in little hands. It helps if the leaf is on backing paper at this point as the link spreads(not kitchen roll as that will absorb all the colour).
This activity was great fun as well as being a great learning opportunity. Not only could both the children (aged 2 and 5 years) do something together at the same time, they were developing fine motor control and making observations.
