1. Paint
2. A big leaf
3. White construction paper
4. A lid or pan


1. Pour paint colors of choice on a lid or pan to hold the paint (acrylics in a variety of colors)

2. Then have the children pressed the leaf into the paint

3. Then transfer the leaf to the paper. (Children really need to press down all around the leaf...making sure to press all the way to the corners.  It takes a minute or two for small hands to be able to do this.)

4.Carefully lift the leaf off the paper.

The results of the mixed colors are striking!
