An Oldie But Goodie-No Mess Fingerpainted Leaves

The truth is, I have never really been afraid to make a mess. In fact, we do it quite often here! This technique is just another fun way to finger paint!

Let's get started!

Lay a piece of wax paper on the table and put a piece of construction paper on top of it. Then add a few colors. Try to keep your paint towards the center so it does not ooze out the side when you start painting!

Add a second sheet of wax paper.

Now the fun begins!

Carefully remove the wax paper.

The colors all blend really well! With no mess!

This is a great way to make:


  1. Thank you so much for the idea! I am always looking for ideas for DS(2) and DS(4) while I am homeschooling DD(10). Will definitely incorporate this into our day!

  2. Very cool! I can't wait to try this. Thanks

  3. Perfect! We will be doing this for sure.

  4. I love, love, love the way these leaves look. I was wondering how you display them. Framed? Magnets? Scattered on a table?

  5. Christie,

    We like to make a Fall display on the inside of our front door. We usually hang all of the girls' paintings and add the leaves around them. However, any of your ideas would be great! I especially like the idea of framing them because then they last forever. :)


  6. Just stopping by to let you know that I have featured your project on Fun Family Crafts! You can see it here

    If you have other kid friendly crafts, I'd love it if you would submit them :) If you would like to display a featured button on your site, you can grab one from the right side bar of your post above.
