Collect autumn leaves in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.
Press the leaves
Press the leaves between the pages of an old book for a day, and remove them when they are flat.
Make a booklet of leaves
Make a book of leaves by selecting your favorites and gluing them to pieces of paper. Label each leaf, and write an annotation about how and where you found it. Then assemble the papers into a booklet.
Make a picture
Use the leaves to construct a picture. Draw a picture outline on a sheet of paper, and then fill it in with leaves. When you are done, glue the leaves to the sheet of paper.
Make a stained glass window
Make a stained glass window. Lay some of your pressed leaves on a sheet of wax paper. Place crayon shavings on the paper beside the leaves, and then cover it with a second sheet of wax paper. Iron the wax paper sandwich at low heat between sheets of newspaper and hang your craft in a window. Display your leaf crafts through every season.
