Painting Autumn Leaves

By Partycraftsecrets @partycraftsecrt
Painting Autumn Leaves It's no secret that Autumn comes but once a year, there's no harm collecting ideas however while you wait to collect leaves.  In Australia, where I blog, Summer is drawing to an end, and Autumn is drawing near.  I'm a big fan of Autumn, I love the more temperate weather and the glory of the changing trees.
While tidying up my blog files, I found this picture of a painted leaf which Little Lotti made at preschool last year.  It's a super easy idea, easily made 'more artistic' by restricting the paint palette that you serve up; the Autumnal colors of red, orange, yellow and brown are a great place to start.
Big leaves work best, and of course there's no harm trying the painting trick in Spring on big green leaves... although there's something almost immoral about painting a leaf that was alive, versus picking a dead one off the ground and tricking it up.
Painting leaves, rocks, bark and other found objects from nature is a great activity for little people, and there's no reason you can't use it as a craft party project.
Enjoy the last moments of your own season, and get ready for the next one!
Best wishes,
Linda.
