Celebrate Autumn: Leaf Painting

| October 29, 2013

When the big storm had passed yesterday we ventured out to play. Off to the park we went to admire the stunning colours of the leaves on the trees, armed with a paper bag for collecting some of the beautiful autumn leaves that lay on the ground.

Imogen was drawn to the rich green and yellow colours.

Back at home, Imogen couldn’t wait to paint pictures of the leaves.


We painted the leaves, stamped patterns on the paper and painted over the leaves to show the different shapes. We have some delightful new additions to Imogen’s art wall.

    Oh wow stunning colours and so much fun! We love Autumnal leaf painting too! Would my holiday post work or does it need to be an activity?

    • Lydia says:

      Your holiday post would be perfect. I love the stunning photos you’ve taken of your Yorkshire travels in Autumn (plus all of those pumpkins) 🙂 x

      I love the reds, oranges and yellows mixed in with the green leaves of autumn. Thanks for linking up with your brilliantly decorated Halloween cookies 🙂

  4. We’ve done a similar activity this week, and it’s lovely getting out there collecting lots of different leaves, and then getting crafty with them 🙂

  5. Finally got round to doing it – was busy mooching round Leeds Castle in Kent when you texted out the link yesterday!

    Wow fabulous post and looks like you were having great fun too! Have linked up my RHS Wisley post 🙂

    • Lydia says:

      Hi Charly, thanks for linking up. RHS Wisley is somewhere we must get to, it looks amazing and Imogen would love the Autumn Adventure 🙂

  7. What a lovely idea! I doubt my little one would sit still long enough to paint them but I would enjoy it 🙂 x

    • Lydia says:

      I love craft activities and Imogen has so much fun (I can’t wait to get glitter everywhere when we make our Christmas decorations) 😉
