Leaf rubbings activity + free printable book. I had tried to interest my kids in a leaf rubbing activity for a while to no avail.

Leaf rubbings activity + free printable book

Then I put together a cute little booklet and paired it with some special, triangle-shaped crayons, and suddenly they were hooked. Who knew?!? A leaf rubbing activity is a great way to combine science and fine motor skills into one fun little project. I set up this invitation to do leaf rubbings with the following materials: Basket with cover pages and blank pages to make their own leaf rubbings books (see link at end of post to get your free copy of the Leaf Rubbings Book)Triangle-shaped crayons (we purchased these ones from P’Kolino, but I these triangular crayons from Crayola also look good)Basket of leaves (I used leaves we had preserved in glycerin, but you can use fresh leaves as well) I showed my kids how to place a leaf under the paper and use the crayon to create a rubbing of it.

18 Awesome Autumn Scavenger Hunts

Do you know what I love most about Fall? I mean aside from the beautiful foliage, super easy leaf activities that kids love to do and the fact that I can pull out a few of my favorite sweaters :) I love that Fall has four mini-seasons -- it's the one time of year where I feel like there's a new start to the world every few weeks. Think about it, many of us consider the back-to-school time as early fall -- warmer days followed by cooler evenings.

Outdoor play sessions begin to shift to the late afternoon and nighttime walks reward us with a peek into nocturnal life. Then the weather shifts and Part 2 of Fall begins -- cooler days and nights, plus the gorgeous leaves that begin to change. Autumn Leaves Coloring Page.

There’s a reason why teachers are adopting interactive activities more and more often: they’re engaging, fun, and effective teaching tools. But you might think that introducing them in your classroom is a bit too complex, or you don’t know where to begin. One of the best ways is to start by using interactive lapbooks, such as this “lapbook d’automne”, because they have a limited number of activities and the end result gives kids a great sense of achievement.

Because the actual leaves I found don’t have the same range of colors on the trees, I thought it would be fun to just outline a leaf. I provide several shapes as suggestions but the actual leaf can be a simple oval. Once the leaf is outlined in pencil, use any kind of paint you want but for we’re going to use watercolor because I like how the colors run together just like the colors in the fall trees! Using a wet brush, paint directly onto the paper, mixing and moving around the color. You can try to copy the colors in one of the trees below, or just do your own thing. Paint fast or slow — you’re the artist! If you want, try different leaf shapes.
