Leaf Painting Fall Activity for Kids

Leaf Painting Fall Activity for Kids

When leaves start falling outside, it’s fun to turn them into art! This gorgeous leaf painting activity for kids is a fun idea to celebrate fall!

My kids enjoyed picking up leaves from our yard and choosing bright paint colors to decorate them with. Any opportunity to paint is always a win for kids!

First clean off the leaves to remove dirt or dust. Place each leaf on a sheet of parchment paper. Paint each leaf with acrylic paint to transform them into beautifully natural fall art. Kids can make designs, paint each leaf a solid color, or design an assortment of patterns. You can even accent your painted leaf art with glitter!

Allow the painted leaves to fully dry before handling them. You can use pretty painted leaves for a table centerpiece, make a painted leaf garland, or create festive fall home decor!
