Here are three simple ideas for art projects that take next to no prep time, yet produce refrigerator-worthy art.  Go gather some leaves and get ready to create!

1. Crayon-Rubbed Leaves
This project is super simple, yet fun for everyone.  Place a leaf under a piece of paper and use the long edge of a crayon to rub over the leaf.  The leaf’s image appears like magic!


2. Leaf Tracing
Trace the outside of a leaf and draw in the details.


3. Glued Leaves on Background
This one is a great way for kids to experiment with blending colors.  Give them 2-3 fall colors of washable paint and have them cover the page with color.  Once dry, they can glue their leaves on to complete their masterpiece.
