Fall Leaf Relief Painting

 One of my absolute favorite fall activities is driving up to the mountains and collecting beautiful leaves with my family.

This year we were lucky and found a few beautiful spots with loads of leaves!  We brought them home and decided to do this really simple craft, Fall Leaf Relief Painting!

Relief art projects are so great for little kids because they don't have to be exact or complicated.  All I did was stick a piece of tape on the back of the leaves and then let my kids mix red, yellow and orange paint to use all around the leaf.  

Of course, my 2-year old turned it into a finger (or whole hand;) painting project ;)

Once your paint is dry you just pull off the leaf and you are left with this beautiful outline in perfect fall colors!

I don't even know if anyone looks at this little blog anymore, but if you do thanks so much for stopping  by and have a fantastic fall day! :)
