1. First, go outside and collect some leaves!

2. Prepare your tags. You can print out this PDF and cut out, or you can create your own template. Use the hole punch to make a hole at the tops. Make about 5-6 tags.



Note: Click the above box and the printable pdf will load in your browser window in about 20 seconds.

3. Paint a leaf with  acrylic paint; turn over onto your tag and press down with your fingers. Lift off and let dry. Repeat with different colors and fill up all of your tags with leaf prints.

4. Create bugs, birds and other creatures out of the prints using pencil and markers.

5. Tie a string and hang on a tree!
