Autumn Leaf Collage

Autumn leaves, twigs and a few paints make the perfect ingredients for an Autumn picture. This is a very simple open ended art activity that is easy enough for toddlers.

How to make an Autumn leaf collage


I gave Harry some brown paint to use which I had mixed up for him. He then saw the red, blue and yellow paint bottles left on the table and asked me to squirt the paint onto the paper for him to paint with. I think his Autumn collage looks quite effective with splashes of colour!

While the paint was drying we went outside on a leaf hunt. Harry spotted a twig and told me it was going to be his tree. After gluing on his 'tree' Harry stuck on the leaves and his Autumn picture was complete.
