Create some leaf art

Ka tipu te waihanga — Creativity will strengthen


Turn colourful Autumn leaves into a work of art.

You will need

  • A table or bench to work on
  • A large piece of paper is best (but smaller is kei te pai)
  • Leaves of different shapes, colours and textures and a few twigs
  • Coloured pencils, crayons or felts
  • PVA or craft glue

What to do

  1. Draw a big tree trunk with branches on your sheet of paper.
  2. Carefully find spaces for your leaves and twigs.
  3. One by one, use the craft glue to stick the items to your page.
  4. When finished leave to dry.

Other ideas

Put a strong leaf under your paper then rub the side of a crayon over the top.

Trace around a little leaf. Place a bigger one over the top and trace around it again. How many sizes can you add? Try colouring each section a bright rainbow tae (colour).
