Capture the vibrant colors of fall and put them on display—inside your classroom!

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 3rd grade / 5 - 8 years

You will need:

Directions

  1. Tape a large sheet of clear adhesive paper, sticky-side up, to each student’s desk.
  2. Instruct students to cover the entire surface of the adhesive paper by tearing small pieces of tissue paper and sticking them onto the paper. (Encourage students to use a variety of fall colors and overlap the pieces on the paper so that all of the “clear” parts are covered.)
  3. Once the sheet is completely covered with tissue paper pieces, help students press a second sheet of clear adhesive paper directly on top, sticky-side down.
  4. Have students place the leaf template on top of the adhesive paper. Then, trace with a marker and cut out the leaf shape from the adhesive paper. (Note that younger students might need more help with this step.)
  5. Punch a hole in the stem of each finished leaf and tie a string or wire through the hole. Then, hang all the leaves from the ceiling of your classroom to create a beautiful fall display!
