Fall is in the air. And you know what that means. It’s time to head outside with a baggie. Huh? Yep. That’s right—it’s leaf-collecting season. With the yellows, reds, and oranges all around, Mother Nature is providing your little artist with inspiration by just being outside. So, start gathering up those leaves and get crafting. We’ve got the most awesome autumn art activities for your kiddo: Paint, print, cut, color and so much more! Peep at them all below.

Abstract Art

If your pint-sized Picasso was obsessed with the negative space leaf print, give this one a try too. It starts with the same idea (using the leaves to make negative space paintings), but adds an overlapping, abstract art aspect to it. Try it using fall colors or use a rainbow of hues. It’s totally your child’s choice. Learn how to make this easy art autumn art here.
