Leaf Rubbings

There is nothing more easy and beautiful than a leaf rubbing.  I did this activity with toddlers a couple of weeks ago while at work and again with Phoebe just yesterday.  Phoebe is old enough to understand that veins transport water through the leaf and this activity is a good way to bring the veins to the fore.  I dried them flat for a day before sandwiching them between two pieces pf paper and rubbing a crayon over the top.
