Maple Leaf Rubbings Art


  • White or red craft paper
  • red or white crayons
  • maple leaves



  1. Gather maple leaves on a neighbourhood walk.
  2. Place a selection of the leaves under a piece of craft paper  
  3. Rub the crayon back and forth vigourously across across the craft paper while applying pressure (but not too much) to reveal the outline of the leaf below.
  4. Use red crayons on white paper or white crayons over red paper. Peel paper off crayons in order to rub the whole crayon over the leaves.
