Autumn leaves can be an endless source of ideas
for children. An example of making crafts with
leaves can be to create pictures in form
of various animals and objects
(discussed in the text FALL ACTIVITIES
FOR PRESCHOOLERS : LEAF ART).
However, the work can be even simpler and
more appropriate for younger children of
preschool age (3 years old). Leaves can set sail
on the paper, which will be especially interesting to children.
For this simple idea it is necessary to collect as many leaves as you can, different sizes and shapes.
The material for the work:
Squeeze tempera into a suitable container. The more colors you squeeze, the pictures will be more vivid and more interesting to children.
Take leaves of various sizes and shapes dip in tempera and print on paper, as shown. You can use colors that are characteristic for the autumn, but it’s better to use some unusual. When the prints are dry, take a cardstock paper and make a frame so the color pictures can be hung on the wall.
In this way you can get an interesting autumn greeting card.
From personal experience, I can say that children love to play with printings on paper and love working with watercolors and temperas.
