Unusual Things To Do With Leaves

Autumn has arrived.

The leaves are turning fantastic colors, and there’s a wealth of wonderful things to collect and explore!

We’ve been finding, identifying and matching leaves…

We’ve been using leaves to make our own forests….

And we’ve been threading leaves….

(Right now Alfie has an obsession with the hole punch – there’s a lot of  ‘caterpillars’ in our garden!)

Taking photos of leaves…

(That’ll be Alfie again!)

And we’ve been using finger paint, glue and tissue paper to make an autumn leaf collage…

Let’s welcome Autumn 2011!
