Colorful Leaf Rubbings

Leaf Rubbings by Fran W

To make leaf rubbings, you will need:

  • Pressed leaves
  • Crayons – peeled
  • White construction or copy paper

Place the leaves under white paper any way you want, and rub the side of the crayon over the paper so that the shape of the leaves underneath can be seen on top. Change colors as often as you want.

If you use a large piece of paper for this activity, cover it with contact paper and use it as a table mat!
