Leaf Painting

Materials Needed:
Paper (we used Newsprint)
tempera paint
brushes (optional)

There are several ways you can go about this. My kids painted with the leaves in three ways
1. Dip the leaves in the paint and use the leaves like a brush
2. Dip the leaves in the paint and use them like a stamp
3. Use a paint brush to paint the leaves and then use the leaf like a stamp
Dipped and stamped
Kaia painted her leaves with a brush and then flipped them over and pushed them down to make a leaf print
