Kindergarten Leaf Unit Study
I'm falling down on the job! We did this painting with leaves activity exactly two months ago, and I'm just now sharing it. This is just one of the leaf activities we did for our leaf unit study in My Father's World Kindergarten. The boys had so much fun painting with homemade yarn paintbrushes, and I knew they would love recreating the art experience, this time with leaves from our backyard.
How to Make Homemade Paint Brushes with Leaves
Each leaf made a unique print, and they loved exploring the different sizes and shapes.
Of course there was a little bit of finger painting as well.
And maybe more than just fingers.
Here are tips for messy play as well as laundry tips to avoid stains and keep clothes bright. Please note: Some areas of our driveway didn't rinse clean despite the fact that we used washable paint. I don't worry too much, because my husband can easily wash them with his power washer. If staining is a concern I highly recommend layering a splat mat under the butcher paper. Shower curtains from Dollar Tree work great for this. Old towels would also work.
