Leaf Rubbing Fairy

Autumn is a fantastic time to take leaf rubbings and this craft is a lovely way to use them.


Skin-tone or white card
Glue stick


Put the leaves under the paper, with the veins facing up, and, holding them still, rub over the paper with the side of your crayon so a picture of the leaf appears on the paper.

Cut out your leaves following the outline of the leaf shape.

From the card cut out a body shape and draw on the face and hair. Use the leaf rubbings to make a dress and wings for your fairy and glue them to the body.
