How to make a Beautiful Fall Leaf Book

September 15, 2015 2 min read

Earlier this month, we shared our top three items to have on hand for fall science experiments and fall leaves was one of those.

Now, we want to share with you all one of our favorite things to do with all those leaves – create a Fall Leaf Book!

Supplies

Here is what you will need:

  • Tape
  • Fall leaves
  • Contact paper
  • Crayons and pencils
  • Sheets of paper (Or download these free templates)

Directions

Start by heading outside to gather fall leaves. Be sure to bring several sheets (or copies of the templates linked above), some crayons, tape, and a pencil with you.

When you find a leaf you like, create a fall leaf record sheet for it. Begin by writing down on your sheet where you found the leaf. If you know what kind of tree the leaf comes from, write that down, too. You can use crayons to make a rubbing of the bark at this time as well. Then, tape the leaf to the sheet. Repeat this procedure for each of the leaves you find and want to keep.

Once you are back at home, take some time to observe each of the leaves, i.e., what color it is, what shape it is, and what size it is. Add your observations to the fall leaf record sheet you created earlier. If you did not know what type of tree your leaf came from, take some time to identify it using the following:

Once your fall leaf record sheet is complete, you can use contact paper to permanently attach the leaf or you can laminate the sheet. Then, staple all the sheets together to make your very own Fall Leaf Book!
