To make fun animals and objects out of leaves, you will need: leaves of different colors, sizes, and shapes; newspaper; heavy books; paper; and glue.

  1. Place the leaves between layers of newspaper. Put heavy books on top of the newspaper and let it sit one or two days.

  2. Arrange leaves on paper to create whatever animal or object you wish to make. Then add a small amount of glue on the back of each leaf, and glue it in place.
