We love fall!
From pumpkins and apples to colorful fall leaves, this season just makes us smile. After several long hot months, it is fun to take the school day outside as much as possible and take advantage of all the changes outdoors for some fall nature study and crafts.

Some of our favorite fall leaves activities:
- Read picture books about leaves–In November by Cynthia Rylant and Jill Kastner, If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond, Oxcart Man by Donald Hall and Barbara Cooney, Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert, Nuts to You by Lois Ehlert, and Why Do Leaves Change Color? by Let’s Read and Find Out Science.
- Learn about different types of leaves, and try your hand at two different painted leaves projects with Nature Study: Fall Leaves.
- Make something pretty to bring the color of fall leaves indoors: Rainbow Leaves Craft.
- Craft your own fall nature journal and fill it with leaf rubbings and drawings.
- Bring in some sun: Put leaves between sheets of wax paper. Iron until it sticks, and then cut out around leaves, leaving a small edge. Stick onto your window with double stick tape for some pretty fall sun catchers.
