Fall is in the air. And you know what that means. It’s time to head outside with a baggie. Huh? Yep. That’s right—it’s leaf-collecting season. With the yellows, reds, and oranges all around, Mother Nature is providing your little artist with inspiration by just being outside. So, start gathering up those leaves and get crafting. We’ve got the most awesome autumn art activities for your kiddo: Paint, print, cut, color and so much more! Peep at them all below.
