leaves,white paper,table,fall colored crayons
Spread leaves out on a tabletop. Let the child put a piece of paper over one leaf (or several). Have them use the crayons to do a leaf rubbing. It comes out better if the paper is removed from the crayons, and they rub over the paper with the crayon down flat. As they rub the crayons back and forth over the paper, the texture of the leaves show up!! You can always finish of this project by gluing the white paper to a piece of fall colored construction paper.
