  • Do you live up in a northern part of the country where the leaves will soon be changing colors then falling? You could start collecting different leaves, make a book of the leaves as they change. Collect different vaireties and such, then teach the child the leaf. Can glue it to some construction paper, label it (which they can do). Educational and fun. Plus they could do some leaf pictures, or leaf rubbings...those are great too.

  • 1)Gather leaves (good ones in tact the larger the better) and get fall colored crayons (red, brown, yellow, orange)¬†preferably ones that are missing the paper and are broke. Put the leaf under a piece of construction paper or copier paper and rub the crayon over the leaf to reveal the veins and stem. Do this all over the paper using different leaves and different colors to make a nice collage.


    2)Using the same principal as above trace your childs hand multiple times overlapping the outlines and for every different shape that is formed color it a different color using fall colors. (also good for any time of year)

  • 3)Take old crayons that are broken shave them into small thin pieces. (fall colors) Get a piece of wax paper about the size of a piece of paper fold it in half, sprinkle the crayon shavings on half of the wax paper folding the other half on top. Take a regular close iron and iron the wax paper melting the crayons. Let it cool then cut out leaf shapes, pumpkin, bats, anything you want and hang then in the window a light catchers

  • Using watercolor paints paint the underside of a assortment of different leaves and make leaf prints on paper by pressing the painted side down on the paper.

    Take a piece 2 pieces of wax aper the size of a placemat and using old crayons in fall colors grate the crayons onto a piece of wax paper covering it lightly with the crayons leaving a 1" border around the paper. Lay the other piece of wax paper evenly on top iron at a low setting until the crayons melt. The child will end up with their own placemat for the season.
