Leaf and Apple Printing

Leaf and apple printing is such a fun art process for toddlers and preschoolers. This Autumn activity is extra messy and involves lots and lots of paint.

The first part of this activity involved going to the park to hunt for some apples and leaves. Once we had a bag full of Autumn finds we headed home to do some printing with them.

We set out a huge piece of paper on the table and got printing.  We started by using green paint to do some leaf prints (and lots of handprints).  I helped harry paint each leaf and press it down onto the paper.

Once the green paint had dried we used red paint to do some apples prints (and lots of handprints).  Harry dipped the apple onto a plate of red paint and then onto his paper.
He then thought it would be great fun to start painting his face! Definitely a very messy activity!
