How to Set Up Shape Painted Leaves Process Art Activity
Gather your supplies. Using the white paper cut out the shapes of different types of leaves.
The easiest way to do this is to fold a sheet of white paper in half 4 times. Draw half of the leaf on paper along the folded line. Cut out the outline to have 4 full leaf.
Grab your shapes (square, star, circle, triangle and cross) and set out your paints. I used my shapes from my Fisher-Price Baby’s First Blocks. For easy access to the paints I like to either use colourful bowls or paper plates or a paint pallet.
Let your little one dip the shapes into the paint and stamp the leaves to make them red, green, orange, brown and yellow as they like.
Glue the leaves to the black construction paper.
This was a really fun but super easy to set up activity. Keep those wipes handy for a super easy clean up as well.
