Here’s a little Halloween twist on the ever popular handprints and footprints to keep the pre-schoolers happy using simple black craft paper and white paint. When they’re dry and cut out you might like to punch a hole in the top and string together to make a cute garland :)

And if you’re looking for fun things to do with the leaves that are starting to pile up read on for some ideas

Leaf Rubbings & Stampings
Collect a variety of leaves in different shapes and sizes. Try to avoid dried out leaves. On a piece of white paper, position leaves vein side up. Lay another sheet of white paper over the top of the leaves. Turn a crayon on its side (remove paper) and gently rub over the top sheet of paper. The leaf image will appear on the paper. taa daa

tip: avoid any leaf with mould and leave to dry out between pages of a heavy book for two weeks before using
