Fall is here! It is my favorite time of year. My kids have been loving all of the Halloween crafts we have been doing, but I thought maybe it was time to add some more fall themed activities to our list.
We had a lot of fun doing crafting with this leaf template. We actually used to live in Canada for a short while for my husband’s job and the maple leaf reminds me of our time in Canada. Of course, we have maple trees here in Texas too.
⭐ Fun ideas for this template
We used tissue paper (like the kind you use for gift bags) and a glue stick to create our fall colored maple leaf. Grab some tissue paper and have your child rip it into small pieces (my oldest loved this part) and then use a glue stick to add it to the template.
Use as a coloring page
This leaf printable is also great for using as a simple coloring page with crayons or markers. If you have other ideas on how to use this template, please share them in the comments below!
⭐ Other fun ideas:
- Puffy paint: To make puffy paint combine equal parts non-toxic white glue and shaving cream with a few drops of food coloring.
- Water colors or other paints
- Tempera paint sticks (we love using these)
