Alfie’s Crunchy Leaves : An Easy Collage

Take a bunch of different coloured leaves and leave them to dry over a few days…

*CRUNCH* them into small pieces (this was the bit Alfie loved best!)….

Have ready some pre-made leaves cut from autumn coloured construction paper…

Spread glue on to construction paper leaves, and then sprinkle with real leaves….

And put up on your paper bag tree (if you happen to have one, like us!)….

This is a great activity for very small people – firstly going out to collect the leaves and discussing the various colours and shapes, and secondly the tearing up of the leaves once dry is excellent fine motor skill practice – not to mention the wonderful CRUNCHY sound and the wonderful smell that comes out of the leaves once CRUNCHED!
