leaf crafts & science projects for kids

Before we even get into the projects, I'm going to ask you for a favor -- please ask the kids to collect leaves from the ground when they prep for these activities. No jumping up to pull them off the tree ;)

Look for leaves that have recently fallen from the tree and are still pliable so they won't fall apart during the craft or experiment. And many times, the type of leaf won't matter. In fact, collecting a wide variety of leaves will usually help to enhance the beauty of the project and increase your child's understanding during the experiement.
