Physical Challenge:
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Leaves
  • Rocks or heavy books, such as telephone books
  • Scissors
Gather leaves.

If you want super-flat leaves, you can press them between heavy books for a day or so. But you can proceed with this activity even if you have not pressed leaves.

Lay out your leaves and start putting them together in various portraits of animals.


Once you have a planned design, glue down the leaves.
You can use leaf stems for whiskers.
Snip them off with scissors.
Hold down whiskers by making a nose with a small leaf.
Press down your portrait with rocks or heavy books until the glue dries.
You can make a lion, fish, mouse, bird, caterpillar.

It's all up to your imagination.
