Leaf Rubbings

There’s nothing fancy about this old favourite but you’ll be surprised at how satisfying it is! And your little ones will think it’s a sheer miracle! You can make a miraculous rubbing from any leaf, but those that have pronounced veins and interesting textures work particularly well.


A selection of leaves
Crayons, pastels, charcoal or coloured pencils


Place a leaf under a sheet of paper and rub with a crayon. Younger kids will need an adult to hold the paper still.

Watch the impression of the leaf appear on the page. Perfect for the fridge door!
