We haven’t done any leaf projects this year, but last fall we did a ton with leaves. We took a walk to our neighborhood playground collecting leaves on the way. These were a few of the projects we did.
1. Leaf Printing: Love Bug dipped leaves in paint and then printed them on a big sheet of paper. Most of them came out imperfect and not really looking like leaves, but it was fun.
2. Tree with Leaves: I printed out a tree template, had him color it brown, and then glue actual leaves on the branches.
3. Leaf Cutting: Fun and kind of messy fine motor and sensory activity with scissors and leaves. (It’s hard to believe he still used a high chair just a year ago!)
4. Leaf Necklace: I think this is one where I ended up doing most of the work. We used a hole puncher to make holes in the leaves (not easy with the leaves that crumble easily) and then strung them onto a string for a necklace.
