- Drawing on leaves - Grab a collection of different coloured and shaped leaves and let your child loose with a white or black pen, it works best if you press your leaves first, this can simply be done by pressing the leaves into a book or a flower press.
- Make a leaf garland - The leaves can be decorated with art as above and then attached to a piece of ribbon or rope to hang up in your house or garden!
- Add googly eyes - Grab your pressed leaves and bring them to life with cute googly eyes and funny faces!
- Add some sparkle! - Make your leaves glitter and sparkle with some glitter paint or pens, these would look great stuck to cards or added to a leaf garland.
