With this fall leaf scratch art project, kids can create a colourful collage of fall leaves using a classic art technique.
Recently we made some spooky Hallowe’en scratch art, and we had enough homemade scratch art paper leftover to do a second project with. We decided on Fall Leaf scratch art collage so we could get one last fall leaf craft in before the snow flies.
If you’ve never done scratch art with your kids, you must try it! It’s really fun and it produces such beautiful results.
I think this project is pretty enough to frame, and would look great on a wall in the playroom or in your child’s bedroom.
This project does require some fine-motor skills, so it’s best for ages 5 and up. Younger children can certainly participate and make some abstract scratch art if the leaf-tracing is too advanced for them.
