Autumn Leaf Drawing Game
You will design a fall leaf by rolling the die and collecting the different patterns required to create it. First, trace the leaf onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Next, roll the die to select the first pattern from the first column and draw it in one of the areas on both sides of the leaf. Roll the die four more times, drawing each selected pattern on both sides of the leaf.
Then using washable markers, outline everything. Be sure to outline large areas where they meet parts of the design. Dip a small brush in water and carefully smudge it in the marker lines to paint in the shapes. If you need to neatly add more “paint” to larger areas, smudge some marker on a scrap piece of paper and use that as a paint palette. Allow each area to dry slightly before moving on to a neighboring area of the design. Lastly, when dry, cut it out. If you’re short on time, design directly onto the print out from page 4 and color with dry media such as markers, crayons, and colored pencils.
Simply print out the game and picture directions back-to-back, give them dice, and watch them have fun creating their own autumn leaf. Once completed, use the writing prompts to connect literacy to your lesson.

Great plans for substitutes. Students used washable markers then went over them with water. It was fun for everyone and they were all different. The sub was happy, the students were happy. It was a win, win. – Kim B.
This was a great product. I left it for a substitute teacher and it went over well. Thank you. – Juanita M.
I am not an artist and when I finished my own leaf I felt like one. I have a few students who are artistic and loved this activity; where they wanted to create two. Thank you for this product. I hope there are many more to come! – Karina R.
