Leaf Collection Book


Since it's fall, there are leaves all over our backyard. We went out one day, each with a brown paper bag, and collected different kinds of leaves.

When we came back inside, I made simple books for the boys using white printer paper folded in half, with a piece of construction paper fold in half on top as the cover. I stapled them together on the edge and the boys decorated the covers with crayons. Then they glued their favorite leaves inside!

So fun! I'm jealous of your leaves. =)

one of my friends did some leaf activities you might like. first, (only w/her 5 yr old) they tore the leaves in half & drew & colored the other side the same way the leaf looked. Her other activity was to have a page w/different colors on it, then go on a leaf hunt (bring glue!) & find leaves that matched those colors.
