My little girl loves to paint, so any project that she gets to paint anything is an success. It it is usually mess too. If you have the same problem, try this bib. It is great for keeping your baby clean while eating and great for your little artist. It worked great when she was a baby and still does when she is almost 4 years old.

How to Make Painted Fall Leaves Kid Craft
- white card stock or watercolor paper
- orange, red, blue, and yellow or other watercolors
- small plastic cup for liquid watercolors
- paint brush
- red & yellow crayons
- pencil (optional)
You can take some leaves or a pattern of leaves and have them trace them lightly onto the paper with a pencil. You can also draw them freehand and then color with the crayon.
Using the red & yellow crayon, draw leaves falling from the top of the paper in different directions. Add the veins in the center. You will want to make a complete line and press firmly with the crayon.
Next, with the orange, yellow, and red watercolor paint the inside of the leaves. Let dry.
Next paint the background blue. Let dry.
