There are some seriously creative people out there who have figured out ways to use leaves that I would have never thought of! Most likely you already have all that you would need to make any of these. Just gather a few supplies and collect some pretty fallen leaves and you and your kids are ready to craft! Here are some genius ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Hole Punch:

I never in a million years would have thought of this. Take some leaves and a hole punch in a fun shape and punch out the leaf! I think these would make for some pretty adorable leaf confetti at a fall party. So festive! You could also use them to make some cards or book marks. Really, the possibilities are endless.

Animal Art:

Try finding some leaves that kind of look like an animal and make them look exactly like that animal! There are some really cute and creative ones out there, like these. So cute! I am in love with the fox. Kids will absolutely love creating their favorite animals from leaves that they found!

Leaf Prints:

My son’s preschool did this with him the other day and he absolutely loved it. I love that you can see the veins of the leaves in the prints. It’s a great way to teach your little ones a little bit about tress and leaves and photosynthesis and all that good stuff. And all the pretty colors are a huge bonus too! These prints would look awesome as fall décor for your home and the kids will be so proud of their creations.
