Leaf Hop
Cut out large leaf shapes from colored paper. Place them on the floor and ask children to hop from one leaf to another. They also could be used at seat markers for circle time.

Variation:
Place real leaves on the ground and have children hop, fly, jump, and run from one leaf to another.

Fall and Leaf Crafts and Games

How to Preserve Fall Leaves
Brush leaves on each side with vegetable oil. Place oiled leaves between layers of newspaper. Place a heavy object on the newspaper for about three days. You will have beautifully preserved leaves for leaf rubbing!

Nature Walk
Go on a nature walk with children. Take along a bag to place leaves in. Pick up leaves of all sizes, shapes, and colors. Have children examine them. Help them write down what they see or write a story about how the leaves fell to the ground.

Leaf Crunch
Collect leaves. Pour leaves into empty water table or in a big bowl. Allow children to scrunch up the leaves with their hands. Children can also sprinkle the crunched leaves onto a paper leaf shape with glue to make a leaf mosaic.
