The other day I decided to look up fun fall activities to do with the kids to try to bring a little more creativity into our home and interaction. A fun, simple idea I saw was to do leaf rubbings. Since I am not very creative normally, I thought this would be the perfect activity to start out our fall.
I gathered a handful of leaves off the trees in our yard in different sizes and shapes. Then I had the boys gather a few of their already broken and de-papered crayons. Then we just needed a few sheets of paper and we were ready to get started.
I demonstrated to the boys how you can put a leaf under the paper and rub it with a crayon and it makes a colorful leaf appear on the paper. Once they understood the basic concept they got to work.
I had to help Jakey with his a little bit, but Jason just took off on his own. Although it only lasted about 5 minutes, it was a nice little activity that we could do together. We then hung the art on the fridge so they can show Daddy when he gets home.
