Leaf Rubbing

Today we took leaves from our leaf bags and created leaf rubbings. We first practiced what it is like to rub our knee, and then our elbow and wrist. We discussed when we begin the leaf rubbing we should not push down too hard with the crayon. If we do, the magic might not appear. After a few practices we were able to see our leaf appear through the paper. To see the look on the kids faces when they begin to see the leaf is exciting. They start moving that crayon even faster to see more and more of the leaf!
