We had so much fun doing our fall leaf project!  One day each student created their own three leaves.  The process involved swirling a bit of acrylic paint into a layer of shaving cream, gently placing our leaf cutouts on the paint/shaving cream and then lifting the leaves up and scraping the excess shaving cream off to reveal our original designs.  The next day we wrote leaf poems to accompany our beautiful leaves.
