All the materials needed to make leaf bugs

Materials Needed

  • Paint or markers 

  • Dry leaves  

  • [Optional] scissors – if you want to cut your leaves! 

Leafs gathered to make a craft with them

Collect your dry leaves and get you imagination going! Cut shapes in your dry leaves, if you need to. 

Leaf with paint on it to look like a bug

Paint or color your leaves to look like bugs! These can be bugs you have seen or bug designs from your imagination.

Several leaves painted like bugs

Make a bunch of bug critter friends!

Take a picture of your creature and tag us in it OR send it to us at OrkilaVirtualCamp@seattleymca.org


Other Ways to Play

  • Find a bug – observe it – and then try and make that bug out of leaves! 

  • Take a photo of your leaf bug in a place where you think it would live if it were alive! How about under a rock, near a tree, or in the dirt?
