Painting With Leaves!

Inspired by our recent Mud and Bloom box we've recently tried painting with leaves! This is another craft that is ideal for autumn, especially with the leaves falling!

Here's our little creation!

This is an easy autumn craft and is ideal for little ones.  To be honest there's not much to it at all but my 4 year old still really enjoyed it and was intrigued by the different strokes and patterns the leaves give.
