Leaf Art For The Whole Family

We recently had a big sort out with Ebi-kun's desk. I have been trying to find a system that works for him. We did have a flat filing tray for his school books and papers but it was getting scary, to the point where I was afraid to be swamped under papers if I happened to be passing the desk when an earthquake hit! 
We now have a vertical stand which is physically impossible to overload, fingers crossed that this works better.
Anyway, as we were sorting through I found these papers that I had prepared ages ago and then they had got sucked into the paper mountain.

I don't remember where we had been but we collected some leaves and then I placed a few on the printed/copier and made a copy for each of us. Such a quick and easy activity that can get all the family members involved in.

We all took a print and doodled on it, the rule is that you are not allowed to look at anyone elses paper until you are finished. Here are the results....

It was fun comparing our pictures and laughing at how differently we see things. I'd love to do this with cloud formations too.

  1. oooooohh love it! Do you think it represents your personalities? Daddy Ebi seems very smiley and positive. :)

  2. Those are really cute!
    We used to do one (in school!!) where one person would draw a scribble on a piece of paper and the other would have to make a picture out of it - either by finding a shape in the scribble or incorporating the scribble into something else.

  3. These are wonderful! Will try this one the soonest! Thank you :)


Thank you!
