I love autumn. I love the feeling of change and the crispness of the air but even better than that is the opportunity for lots of beautiful autumn crafts. Take a walk along a leafy lane with a pre-schooler and you simply can’t help having fun and learning something new. Talk about why the leaves are falling, what colours you can see, the different shapes of the leaves. Do you know the names of the trees? Can you catch a leaf as it falls? Collect some favourite shapes and colours and bring them home to make a leaf picture.
I’d thought we might do some leaf rubbings using wax crayons but L wanted to glue. Here’s the picture she made – with some letters sneaked in too.
