Autumn Leaf Activities

14 Oct


Golden leaves outside our home


Autumn is a beautiful time of the year. We get to witness another phase of the cycle of life Subhanallah. I have been doing preschool activities centered around leaves with DS2. Some of the activities we did.


Leaf rubbing


We placed the leaf on the wrong side below the white paper to get a bolder tracing of the leaf. Using a thicker crayon or using the sides rather than the tip of the crayon also helps.


Leaf sorting


We sorted the leaves based on colour. The one leaf sitting on the side had all the colours on it and DS2 just didn’t want to group it with anything else 🙂

Both these activities and other extension of them are in the book Teach Me To Do It Myself by Maja Pitamic.
