Fall is a time when preschoolers and adults gain
over many responsibilities. It is still possible to relax, breath some fresh air, under still shining sun.
However, when the weather changes, it is necessary
to develop a variety of interesting activities that fall
does not become dull and boring. During the autumn sunshine, the children can collect leaves of different shapes
and sizes, which provides many opportunities for
different activities. Children can compare the
leaves in size, shape and markings. They can arrange leaves
in ascending and descending sequence. Other interesting thing for kids is to form sets and compare them, thereby developing the concept of features of the set.  Assembling sets may represent the introduction of the addition operation.
From the collected leaves, children can make a variety of images. You just have to let your imagination run wild. Here will be presented a few creative ideas.

IDEAS FOR LEAF ART

The material for the work:

  • foliage
  • cardstock paper
  • scissors
  • glue

Leaves can be bonded to various substrates, depending on the children’s imagination and creativity: cardstock paper, cardboard, wood, plastic, nylon …

Kids can make even more complicated things, like chicken or fish.

These interesting images can be used as invitations or greeting cards for various occasions. If you frame picture, it can decorate nursery walls. As you can see, there is a lot of fall activities for preschoolers that you can organise making art from  ordinary leaves.
