Guide your child as she lays out her leaf design. Take this opportunity to ask open-ended questions to get your child thinking about what she wants to create and how to create it. Repeat what she says, and elaborate when necessary. Talking is a powerful way to help children extend their thinking.
- What do you want to make?
- How many leaves do you think you will need?
- Which leaf do you think will make a good body?
- What color hair do you want to give your leaf person?
Once your child has designed her leaf art, help her plan in what order the leaves should be glued to the paper and how to glue them without losing the design.
