Supplies for Fall Leaves Symmetry Painting


  1. First, download your free leaf template then print on white cardstock. If you have a Cricut, cut different fall leaves for this activity.
  2. Next, use scissors to cut out the leaves. Make sure an adult is helping younger children for this step.
  3. Fold the leaves in half then open.
  4. Add drops of paint on one side of the leaf. Only use a little bit of paint for each color. My toddler got a little carried away with the paint so make sure to supervise the little ones.
  5. Fold and squish together! Gently rub one side of the paper to spread the paint.
  6. Finally, carefully open the leaf to reveal a beautiful painting. Kids can add glitter to give it a little sparkle.

The fall leaves symmetry painting turned out beautiful! I love that each leaf looks different. The glitter really adds a nice touch! Hope you have fun creating this fall art project with the kids. Make sure to share this post or tag me on Instagram if you make this with your family!
