Give your child a notebook and crayons and go on a leaf hunt. As they see interesting leaves, have them draw what the leaf looks like or make a rubbing of the leaf. If they are a bit older, have them note where they saw the leaf and any special characteristics about the leaf.
Activity 2 | Leaf Collecting & Sorting
Give your child a little bag and go on a leaf hunt. Pick leaves of all different types. Then, challenge your child to sort the leaves into categories (small and big, etc.)
Activity 3 | Leaf Painting
Provide paint and paper. Use the leaves collected in Activity 1 & 2 as paint brushes and paint with the leaves. You can even make the leaves into stamps!
