1. Collecting Leaves

This can be such an enjoyable activity, whether you're alone or with family or friends. Spending time outside in nature and taking the time to look closely at the world around you can bring such a sense of peace and wonder as you may find something unique and wonderful or even something you've never noticed before. Take notice of the brightness of a particular red maple leaf or how different trees lose their leaves and change colors at different times. Once you've collected your leaves, you can begin creating art as you wish.

2. Leaf Rubbings

This can be the start of a small project or an extension of a layered piece of art. It's a simple way to create art with leaves that can be done alone or with children of all ages. By simply placing paper on top of your leaves and rubbing them with crayons, you can create a detailed leaf in any color and preserve its beauty.
