Or leaf rubbings as the kids preferred. We are lucky in that we live next to a great park that we spend lots of time in. On the way back from our picnic lunch today the kids collected all manner of things including lots of gorgeous autumn leaves- I love the colours. In the gorgeous light coming through our window, I showed them how to do leaf rubbings but adapted the technique to suit them. I used a small mount of blue tack to stick the leaf to the table and then sellotaped the paper to the table so it didn't slide around for them. We used oil pastels- they're great for kids are they produce lovely bright colours, can be blended and respond in different ways depending on how much pressure you apply while drawing.
