How to Make a Leaf Print Picture

Spring will be here before you know it.  And this activity is a great excuse to spend some time outdoors.   With this activity you will need to go outdoors and collect leaves of different shapes and sizes.  You will paint them and use them as a stamp to create a picture of your choosing.  This craft is a lot of fun and the cool part is that no Leaf Print Picture will ever be the same.  Use your creativity to paint a bunch of different pictures.  So, grab some leaves and let’s get started.
