Brooklyn Doodles is an early education art enrichment program that specializes in teaching children how to create through meaningful self expression. Their projects are always thoughtful and unique.  When you walk in a BK Doodles classroom, you will see distinct pieces of art with a similar theme - not the other way around.

This leaf project is simple but allows children to identify Fall colors and shapes using texture while honing their fine motor skills. Best of all, you probably have all the supplies in your home.


You will need:

  • Cardboard leaf cutout
  • Glue with brush
  • Yarn (Fall colors)
  • Brush


















Paint on glue with brush. Cover entire surface.
















Apply yarn piece by piece to glue surface.





















Viola! Finished leaf.
