Leaf Rubbing

This is an autumn must-do.

Go outside and pick a variety of leaves of different shapes and sizes. Show your children the backs of the leaves where the veins are raised. Place them vein-side up, and cover them with a sheet of white paper. Put a small piece of tape on each of the four edges of the paper to keep it from sliding around. Peel off the wrappings from a few crayons, and hold them flat along the paper. Rub the crayon back and forth, and soon the leaf will magically appear! My boy had lots of fun 'finding the leaves mom hid under the paper,' and wanted more and more and more.
