LEAF PEOPLE

Level: ECE, Primary, Junior
Grades: PreK-5 | Age: 2-11yrs | Written by: Andrea Mulder-Slater
[Andrea is one of the creators of KinderArt.com]
Summary:

Students will use leaves and twigs to create figures.

What You Need:
What You Do:

  1. Have a look at a small pile of leaves to see if their shapes suggest heads, arms, bodies etc.

  2. Choose some leaves that resemble people parts and glue the shapes down on construction paper. You may need to do some cutting and rearranging to come up with a pleasing shape.

  3. If you have the leaves (and the time) you could create a huge leaf person by drawing out a body shape and gluing leaves all over to fill in the shape.

  4. You can use twigs and construction paper scraps to add details to your leaf person.
