    Big Leaf Printing use the lid of a cake pan to hold the paint (acrylics in a variety of colors). The children were free to add colors as they liked...just a bit, spread around works very well. Leaf Then the children pressed the leaf into the ink...I used a big leafed plant in my garden (I have no idea what it is) but a rhubarb leaf would work very well. (Edited to add...thank you to Monika for pointing out that rhubarb leaves are toxic and should not be used for this project.) Then we transfered the leaf to the paper. The children really need to press down all around the leaf...making sure to press all the way to the corners. It takes a minute or two for small hands to be able to do this. Carefully lift the leaf off the paper. Leafprint The results of the mixed colors are striking.
