Fall Leaves Fall

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!}.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  20. 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*

  21. 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!}
