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?
