There are SO many things you can do with Autumn leaves!
First go our and ENJOY them. Let the kids have fun crushing them under foot, jumping in the. Throwing them in the air. Watch. Listen. It’s a fun way to learn so many new words. How do they feel? Which words describe the sounds they make? How many colours can you see?
Then collect and press some in old magazines .
Then they can be used to make spoon people or table decorations or collages or beautiful lamps.
It’s a good idea to take an old book out with you when you go collecting because fallen leaves curl up very quickly. If you take a book then you can slip the leaves between the pages. Then, on returning home, the book can be placed under something heavy or between other books on the bookshelf until you are ready the use the leaves.
On today’s programme (click on the link below) you will see how to make models and pictures and a lantern but there are lots more things you can do and there will be more ideas in our next programme. The programme is designed to inspire and motivate young children and is introduced by the JUMBLES puppets. Watch it together and then …have fun!
