Criss-Cross Fall Leaves


Cirss-Cross Fall Leaves

Alttag here

• green construction paper
• shallow baking pan or the lid of a box
• small bowls or plastic containers
• Tempera paints
• golf balls

Alttag here

1. Help your child to cut one or more large leaf shapes out of green construction paper.
2. Place the leaf shape on a shallow pan or box with lid.
3. Set out small bowls Tempera paint in the fall colors of yellow, orange, red and brown. Let your child dip a golf ball in one color at a time, put the ball on the pan or lid and shake it around so the golf ball rolls, in criss-cross fashion, across the paper.
4. Wash and dry the golf ball or use a new golf ball for the other colors.
5. Let the leaves dry and hang them up. Look for fall leaves outside, and notice how green leaves begin to change colors, getting spots and edges of yellow,
orange, red and brown.
