Fall Leaves Fall

10/08/2010
A fall wind blew through our trees this week and Eliana ran outside to stand under the willow tree exclaiming as she ran, "Fall leaves fall!" They blew everywhere. I had to laugh because the day before Luke had Jordan rake all the leaves on the grass. I almost stopped him because I wanted to do some of the activities from the book with the little ones. . . but I knew there'd be more!


Catch them, stomp them, make pictures with them, rake them up and jump in ~ this book shows all the fun things to do with leaves. I love the vibrant collage like pictures and simple fun text.


This week week {and some of last}, our activities focused on this book and other books about Fall/Autumn, such as Count Down to Fall. See our Tot School ~ Fall Leaves Fall post from last year to see more of what we have done {and see how much Eliana has grown, wow!}.

laminating the leaf collages and critters is a great idea.. they look like naturey stained glass art!

Michelle said...

Inspiring! Nice works. Thank you for sharing.

Michelle said...

I love all your activites with leaves. I need to do the leaf matching with my son. I would love for you to stop by and link to Read.Explore.Learn.

Michelle said...

Wow! What a wonderful post full of ideas for the new season. I love the book suggestions and I may just need to have a new fall picture book for my collection. I also love the glitter/leaves laminated project too...

Thanks for sharing your signs of autumn.

Michelle said...

Love the laminated leaves! I do tot school with my son too... tons of fun!! :)

Michelle said...

Wow such great, wonderful leaf projects...I'm jealous of all your ideas. I might have to "borrow" some of them.

If you stop by to see our stART project, then please check out the interview I did with Leah of Almost Unschoolers as well!

I love the leaf birds and Eliana's expression in the matching leaves photo.

Michelle said...

What great fall activities! They all look like fun, but I particularly like the falling leaves with the movement of them. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope y'all continue to enjoy the blessings of autumn!

Michelle said...

Thank you so much of linking to Read. Explore. Learn. I will now of a permanent link to your great activities right on my blog.

Love your leaf creations. And I can honestly say that I am JEALOUS! Our fall isn't as pretty as yours. We did leaves last week and the only ones on the ground were brown and crunchy. Of course, it did make for fun stomping.

Michelle said...

i love the leaf collage...and as usual your pictures are fantastic! Have a great week :)

Michelle said...

I like your leaf birds! What a cute idea!

Michelle said...

Such sweet pictures of the kids.

The collages are so pretty and laminating them was such a good idea. I always love all the light you have inside your house. It is so bright and cheery.

Michelle said...

Your photography is beautiful! Such fun activities. Love the painting tray idea-I gotta use that!

Michelle said...

Beautiful!!!! I'm totally jealous of the fall colors. We don't really get that here in southern VA.

The leaf birds are ADORABLE! We're doing the same leaf matching game this week. Love prekinders.

Michelle said...

I love the leaf birds! Our summer was so hot that the leaves aren't falling too quickly yet - but I don't think it'll be much longer. Can't wait to rake up a huge pile for my (almost) 4 yr old!

Michelle said...

Leaves are the best source of entertainment and learning right now. Love that book!

Michelle said...

Hopefully you will have fall soon! Enjoy your warm weather, now that it is cooling off ~ ours is turning quickly and I am cold!

Michelle said...

I bet you don't get the cold and snow we get either . . . I'm sure that jealousy will let off once we are freezing here, lol. *Ü*

Michelle said...

Thank you! *Ü*

Michelle said...

Thank you! I wouldn't have thought to use it if I hadn't laminated a bunch of pressed leaves for a leaf exchange that we participated in when we did Botany. I love how it looks, though! {And the dining room is the only bright and cheery room ~ so wish the rest of the house was too!}

Michelle said...

Thank you! *Ü*

Michelle said...

Thank you, Sarah! *Ü*

Michelle said...

Thank you! Don't be jealous ~ pretty soon everything will be bare and frozen and we will be cold!

Michelle said...

Thanks again for inviting me! *Ü*

Michelle said...

Thanks, Cara! *Ü*

Crazy thing happen in the last few days since posting my comment...the leaves actually changed colored! Some areas look absolutely beautiful! We may have to revisit our leaf art!
