Project Instructions

  1. Trim a piece of construction paper to the size of the folder.
  2. Teachers, using a pencil, help write "Fall into Reading" on the construction paper and then go over it with markers.
  3. Using a foam paint brush, place a pea-sized amount of paint on the back of a leaf.
  4. Make a print of the leaf by pressing it painted side down onto the construction paper. Repeat as desired.
  5. Decorate any remaining space with stickers. Or cut fall-themed shapes out of the felt and glue onto the paper. ***Tip: Use bigger embellishments first then fill in with the smaller ones.
  6. Glue the entire finished piece to the cover of the folder.
