Fall Leaf Craft Idea: Gel Pens

Leaf Art

Decorating leaves is practically a creative right-of-passage into winter, and in this year’s case, the perfect fall rainy-afternoon activity. Collecting and doodling on beautiful fall leaves is incredibly relaxing and FUN; I actually enjoy this whimsical leaves kids’ craft as much (or more!) as my elementary-aged kids.

Create exquisite patterned and decorated fall leaves by doodling with gel pens. It's hours of relaxing, creative fun! No setup required - just leaves, gel pens and perhaps some good music. It's an autumn craft that both you and your kids will love! #fall #leaves #kidscraft #autumn #halloween #crafts #artsandcrafts

Doodles on Autumn Leaves – Leaf Art in Autumn

At the start of 2020’s quarantine, Grandad sent an Amazon surprise to the kiddos: color gel pens!

We’ve really enjoyed our colored gel pen set, especially for their brilliant colors and glittery sparkle. Our gel pen set did not disappoint as they served as the perfect medium for the intricate details and patterns that we wanted to add to our leaves. The only downside: gel ink takes a bit of time to dry, so you do have to be careful not to drag your hand through the wet ink.

Create exquisitely patterned and decorated fall leaves by doodling with gel pens. We love this set of 36 colors that we purchased off of Amazon. Coloring leaves provides hours of relaxing, creative fun! No setup required - just leaves, gel pens and perhaps some great music!!! This is an autumn craft that both you and your kids will love! #fall #leaves #kidscraft #autumn #halloween #crafts #artsandcrafts

Prep for this fall kids craft is virtually nil. Leaves, gel pens, and preferably some great background music are all you need. Relax and have fun!
