Leaf imprinting is a great fall art activity for all ages!  The results are frame-worthy and super fun to do!  Take advantage of the gorgeous fall weather and gather leaves of various sizes and shapes.  A regular piece of copy paper and crayons is all you need to make some awesome works of art.  Place the leaf under the paper where you want it to be, then rub the side of a crayon on top of the paper to reveal the design of the leaf.  Have fun experimenting with different colors and leaves.

I tried this activity with a group of Preschool/Kindergarteners.  They all loved gathering the leaves, but only a few of them actually got into the activity.  If you plan to do this project as a group, I would recommend ages Kindergarten and up.
