Leaf Art

Sound the season change klaxon! We reckon we’re approaching optimal time to make autumnal art. Red and orange leaves are littering our parks, and sunny days mean they haven’t yet turned to mush. They’re perfect for little hands to make into stunning art. We love the work of Mehdi Mo’eeni, an Iranian illustrator who creates images of animals from natural materials. Or you can press the leaves, and turn them into the basis of sketches like this artist. Or even, with time and effort, and a whole load of skill, your kids may be able to carve the Statue of Liberty or Marilyn Monroe into park-scavenged materials.
