Autumnal Equinox Fall Leaf Paint
The autumnal equinox marks the start of the fall season. This celestial event (when the sun is over the equator), is celebrated in many different ways. If you’re looking for an easy way to help your child learn about the autumnal equinox, check out this artsy leaf project. It’s simple enough for preschoolers to try, but easy to adapt for an older child!
- Fall leaves
- Tempera paint
- A paintbrush
- Pick a few fall leaves from the ground. Don’t worry if they aren’t the brightest reds or yellows that your child can find. Your little artist will be painting over the natural color.
- Decide if your child wants to create realistic colors or go with a more imaginative set of hues. Realistic colors would include red, orange and yellow, while an ‘imaginative’ take on fall leaves might include green, pink, blue or purple.
- Pour the paint onto a palette. Make quarter-sized pools. If you don’t have a palette, use a piece of wax paper or thick cardboard instead.
- Paint the front of each leaf. Let the leaf dry.
- Paint the back of each leaf. Let the other side dry.
Your child can display the leaves as is, make a wreath with them (glue them to a donut-shaped piece of cardboard) or hang them up with yarn and make a mobile!
