Fun and Super Easy Fallen Leaves Craft for Kids to Make


Here are all the materials you'll need:

1. Practice drawing a tree on scrap paper. When you are happy, cut the best one out as a template and use it as a stencil to lightly sketch a tree outline on your art paper or canvas.

2. Go over the sketched outline with marker pen, then fill in the trunk and branches with the brown pen.

3. Use a hole punch to make ‘leaves’ using red, green, yellow and orange card stock or construction paper.

4. Spread clear glue on the ground under the tree and among the branches.

5. Sprinkle the punched out circle 'leaves' onto the paper or canvas to create the look of fallen leaves.

6. Display your finished craft!
