  • Paints
  • Paint brushes

What to do:

  • Give each child a piece of clay.
  • Encourage them to make different shapes with it and roll it flat.
  • Each child selects a leaf/flower, places it onto the clay and gently use a rolling pin to press it into the clay for an imprint.
  • Gently pull the leaf /flower off the clay.
  • Allow the clay to dry overnight.
  • Paint the leaf/flower imprint after the clay dries.

Hints and Tips:
