Toddler Tuesday: Leaf Rubbings

This past autumn I spotted a Pin of “Leaf Rubbing” on Pinterest.  Although we did this activity in November, it also makes a great summer activity!

I remembered that my mom did leaf rubbings with us when we we were kids, so I decided to give it a try.

I think this activity would be a better activity for older kids, because they could push harder on the crayons than my toddlers.  Or maybe thinner paper would be a good idea for younger kids.

We had a good time anyway, and had lots of new autumn images to hang on the refrigerator.

  1. I don’t think I’ve done this in the summer. It would be fun to do this with fig leaves!

    I loved doing the leaf rubbings with my kids 2 years ago. Last year, I found a wonderful book at the library where the author used different types of leaves to display various “animals”. This inspired our family to collect various leaves and display our own animals on a poster board. Since I homeschool (my kids were in Kindergarten and 3rd grade at the time), I turned it into a science lesson where the kids used the leaves to identify the trees it came from (the book was also used as a reference). Fall is my favorite time of year so I am partial to “Fall” themes crafts/projects.
