Oil Pastel Leaf Craft

Give a new fun twist to the traditional painting crafts by making this charming oil pastel Leaf Craft. Kids will love the fun technique used to make this easy oil pastel craft and it looks so effective. 

If you enjoyed our Pointillism Leaf Art for Kids Craft, you are going to love today's oil pastel leaf craft! We're using a similar leaf printable, so you know this will look amazing (and it'll be super-easy!)

With so many new things on the market and so many intricate craft ideas a click away, I thought it would be nice to go back to basics for today and join my little ones in a fun colouring session! For this reason, I choose to work with oil pastels to colour this adorable leaf template. We all know and love oil pastels, and with good reason! 

Pastels are a kid-favourite supply and have become a staple in any craft kid-friendly toolbox. They offer such vibrant colours and versatile ways to use them and explore colour mixing! Read on and make your own leaf craft with some oil pastels too!

Now, if you still want to get more ideas for leaf crafts, please feel free to check our Leaf Craft activities or if you want to keep going with the oil pastels check out our Georgia O'Keeffe inspired Poppy Craft.
