You will need:
- A variety of different leaves. We recommend collecting these with your child in a fun and educational way, like by going for a walk through a park or forest, and trying to identify which kind of tree each leaf comes from!
- Wax crayon shavings of different colours
- Wax paper
Step 1: Fold the wax paper in half, then open it back up so you have two clearly divided halves
Step 2: Arrange a few of your collected leaves on one half of the paper
Step 3: Place some of the wax crayon shavings around the leaves
Step 4: Fold the paper back over
Step 5: Carefully iron the folded paper on a medium setting, until the leaves and crayon shavings are sealed in the paper (Note: it is best to put an old towel down on the surface you are doing the ironing on to protect it from heat damage)
Step 6: Let sit to cool. The end result should be a beautiful, colourful leaf print!
