Leaf Rubbing

Blue crayon leaf rubbing

Friday 13th March was the first day of #LockDownIreland, but today is the first day of the more severe version so now we need activities that don’t involve going out even to the park.  Leaf rubbing is an activity more normally associated with autumn, when leaves are everywhere and are old and hard.  But it can be done in spring too as long as you’re gentle with those soft new leaves.  Just grab some leaves from your garden or yard (or even a pot plant!) and follow our quick guide to Leaf rubbing.
