We’re so excited to share today’s guest post from Amanda at Living, Loving, Learning. She has a fun fall project you can do with your child, toddlers and older. Enjoy!
On www.livenlovenlearn.com I try to make fun learning projects for preschoolers and toddlers just by using what you have at home and with little to no prep work involved. Today we are making a fall leaf garland. Before we made this garland we went on a fall walk where we collected a lot of fall leaves in all sorts of sizes and colors. We sorted the leaves, counted them and now we will use some of them for this project.
- Cut open a paper bag
- Take some leaves that you found on your leaf hunt and trace around them onto the paper bag
- Paint over top of the leaf patterns
- Wait for paint to dry and cut out the leaves
- Using clothespins,clip them onto a string and hang the string up as a garland
(the big leaf was my creation)
Of course to go with our project is a fun book. I believe that the best way to teach a child to read is to read to that child, develop in them a love of reading and the technicalities of reading will come easy. Here is the book I recommend:
We’ve found some fun people with great linky parties. You might just see this post linked up on one of these amazing sites!
