We've always done leaf rubbings in the fall but with all the new plant life out now I thought leaf rubbings would be a great way to appreciate the different plants and leaf shapes we have around our home. A short walk outside around our home was all that was needed to find a good collection.
With the collection scattered around the table we used crayon rocks and crayon blocks for the rubbings.
After a little trial and error, I found the best way was to lay the leaf on a scrap paper and use a small square of paper for the rubbing. The small paper square allowed my daughters to find the leaf easier than if it were hiding under a whole sheet of paper.
They both loved the process of leaf rubbing and worked for a while on this craft.
When we finished we noticed that some of the leaves looked like the shapes of insects. We chose a few to turn into insects and had fun with that too.
