I know this is off the subject, but once during my art club I had kids brush the
back side of leaves with bleach. We then pressed them onto construction paper.
A leaf makes a beautiful print. I warn them of all the dangers of bleach first.
I wouldn't suggest doing this with a rowdy group. When they were dry we added to
our creations with colored pencils.
