Tempera Paint Roller Leaves
An Activity for Preschoolers:
An autumn activity that children will find engaging.

Before You Begin:
Go on a walk to gather leaves for this activity. If that is not possible, you can use a variety of paper leaves. Set supplies out on a table covered with butcher paper. Covering the table will make cleanup simple.

Activity Goals:
Introduce children to a new way of making fall leaves.

Take some time to discuss the various kinds of leaves that were gathered on your walk. What are the different characteristics of the various leaves? Try this activity using foam or paper shapes with the paint roller.

Place paint onto paper plates.
Place leaves on construction paper.
Roll a small amount of paint onto the roller, and then roll around the edges of the leaf.
Now that you have an outline, paint the entire leaf using different colors.
