This is a great idea for children ages 5 and up. My 10 year old daughter (stepdaughter) started this and when we go somewhere we always get leaves for her.


  • 1 Book
  • 1 Pen or pencil
  • Lots Lots of leaves
  • 5 Long sheets of baking paper to trace
  • 3 Lots of glue and sticky tape


  1. Collect leaves from everywhere you go.
  2. Trace and draw your leaves.
  3. Stick or glue (or both) in your book.
  4. Write a bit about the leaves and where you got them from.

Want other brilliant projects sent to you?


About The Author

My name is Rebecca and I am a mum of 6 they range from 21 down to 10. I love cooking and enjoy cooking with my girls sometimes when my boys like cooking ( they used to anyway). Iam lactose in tolerant and gluten intolerant as well as diabetic so recipes are hard to find that aren't so powdery and taste bland, currently I am studying certificate 2 in Retail Services then I am going on to do certificate 3 in Business.
