This fall leaf scribble pattern is perfectly bright and full of color!! I love it when the seasons change and the leaves start turning shades of red and orange and yellow!
I am notoriously known for doodling, I scribble through meetings, phone calls, TV, and just about anytime I have a pen in my hand… apparently really smart people doodle… 🙂 whilst the jury is out on that, I have created this wonderful fall leaf scribble pattern art idea.
It incorporates doodling of course but I have also tried to make use of warm and cool colors to create a contrast between the leaf and the background.
I have included free printable leaf templates to get you started!

Warm and Cool Colours
Warm and cool colors is a great art or craft lesson for any child 4+. This particular scribble pattern idea is a little more complicated than it seems at face value so I would recommend this one for kids 5 years+.
We have worked with warm and cool colors before making these awesome fish collages.
I used cool colours for the background and warm colors for the leaves. This creates a nice contrast.
The colour wheel below shows you the difference.
For discussion beforehand: warm colors remind us of the sun and fire and cool colors remind us of the sea and water and grass…
