We started by collecting different colored leaves from around the yard in lots of colors and sizes. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on who is working the rake…) we have a bunch of HUGE trees and loads of leaves to jump in, play with, and collect. We put our leaves in big trays to dry and take to our play group.
into large sheets that would be able to fold over to placemat size. This was definitely NOT accurate or precise. Each of our placemats are slightly different sizes and as unique as the child making them!
Fall Leaf Books
by David Ezra Stein is such a cute story about a bear who is surprised about the falling leaves. This book was fun for us because we enjoy seeing the leaves fall from our trees and we love to try to catch them as they fall.
Autumn Orange (Know Your Colors)
by Christianne C. Jones was a good book for us and a fun read. Especially Baby Girl liked this one (who is just learning her colors and thinks every color is purple 🙂 !
