One of the best parts of fall is watching the leaves change colors and fall to the ground. You’ll enjoy watching your child bring out his/her creativity with this fun fall leaf painting activity. What’s even better is that you don’t have to live in a place where the leaves are actually fully changing! It also allows for your child to express their creativity without creating a huge mess. Each tree they make, creates a different, unique masterpiece.

Fall Leaf Process Painting
an empty toilet paper roll
paints, assorted fall leaf colors
a tree trunk shape cutout
Step 1 Take your toilet paper roll and squish it so it creates a leaf-like shape.
Step 2 Allow your child to dip the open end into a color of their choosing. Then, they will stamp the painted end somewhere on their tree. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter where and it’s fun to see what they come up with.
Step 3 Continue to dip the toilet paper roll into the different colors until your child feels like their artwork is complete.
This process art is great for kids ages 2-6, or so. The younger the child, the more supervision is advised.
Looking to Add In Some Learning?
Art pairs so well with reading and writing! This is a great activity to do along side reading a book about fall or changing leaves. You can find books at your local library, through an app on your phone or computer, or at a book store.
