Watercolor Fall Leaf Kids Craft Hip2Save

It’s Fall and the leaves are starting to change beautiful colors where we live so today I’m sharing a fun and easy craft you’ll enjoy doing with the kids. I volunteered in my son’s class last week and they were making this leaf project using crayon and watercolors. They turned out super cute!

Here are the shapes you’ll need. Just print out the image found here on a heavy paper or cardstock and cut them out.

For this craft you’ll need:
* Crayons
* White paper
* Water color paint and brush
* Scissors
* Leaf shapes from above in a thick paper or cardstock


1. Place your first shape on the paper and with heavy short strokes color around the edges in crayon.

2. Place your second leaf and repeat the process in a different color making sure not to overlap the first leaf. Repeat the same process without overlapping the first or second leaf.

4. Using the same color as each leaf paint the inside of leaves with corresponding water colors.

5. Paint the background in a different shade than the leaves and let dry.

The crayon sort of creates a barrier for the paint so it’s really easy for kids to do on their own without help.

They LOVED doing this project. It’s so therapeutic to just sit, relax and get creative for a moment with the kiddos. I hope you can use this idea with your little ones either at home or even in class. This would be a great Fall party craft for school!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
