Making preschool leaf people
with your child is a fun your
child is sure to love.  What is
nice about doing so is that you
have so many options.  It is
also important to mention that
this activity is one that is
affordable.

Leaves

Glue

Paper

Crayons, Markers, or Colored
Pencils

1 - You will want to start by
trimming the bottom from all leaves,
namely the stems.  This makes
gluing the leaf to paper easier.



2 – Glue the leaf to the paper.  In
our home, we use both white glue
and glue sticks, as using both
serves as extra reinforcement.



3 – Start drawing.  Have your child
draw arms and legs and possibly
even hair on their preschool leaf
person or people.

Extra Steps for Making Preschool Leaf People

In addition to a simple leaf person, have your child glue a number
of leaves to one paper.  They can make a community of leaf people!

Also, have your child draw a background.  This background can be
scenery items, such as mountains, a school, a home, and so forth.

Pictured above, we used the eyes can that can purchased from
most craft stores.  If you do not have these items, your child can
simply draw eyes on their leaf person.  For darker leaves, have
them draw a set of eyes on a light colored piece of paper and you
can cut them out and your child can glue them.
