As I was thinking about Fall Activities for my 3 and 1.5-year-old, I discovered so many Easy, Inexpensive & Creative Leaf Activities on Pinterest, I decided I had to share my top 8 Easy, Inexpensive & Creative Leaf Activities. Photos are sourced from respective blogs with a link back to the post. Please click through to their sites for more details! Also, check out my Fall Rainbow Letters!
8 Easy, Inexpensive & Creative Leaf Activities
Living Montessori Now has a great round up of activities including this one by To The Lesson! From practical life to math to science, you will find many Montessori inspired activities for your home and classroom.
Love the creativity in this leave activity from Full Circle. The greatest part is how the activity combines art and the senses. Children crumple dry leaves and create their own masterpiece! Process art at its best!
My Kids Make has two activities that I adore a Leaf Rubbing and a Leaf Connect the Dot. Leaf rubbing is easy to do and inexpensive. Take the kids out to gather leaves, pack paper and crayons, and find a spot to rub leaves! A wonderful fall outdoor activity for children!
These leaf prints from Kleas are gorgeous and so easy! Kids love this art activity. Go outside and gather leaves. Paint one side of the leave and make a gorgeous print.
One of my favorite blogs, Happy Hooligans, incorporates learning and movement into their fall activity. How beautiful is this spiral of leaves?
I love the simplicity and honesty in working with younger children in this fall activity post by Gigi’s Joy. Another leaf printing idea but the post is worth the read!
This “foliage friends” from Family Fun @ Disney are too adorable not to include in this list. Kids can get so creative with this activity. I love watching their imaginations run wild!
This Leaf Sun Catcher from Adventures in Reading With Kids is simple and beautiful. I love the use of branches for the frame. Grab some contact paper and create away!
