Leaf Themed Sensory Activity for Preschoolers

This week’s sensory activity is a Fall Rice Sensory Bin.

I love using rice in the sensory bins as it’s a material that you can make and then store to use again and again.

If you go on a nature hunt this week why not find some of the first signs of fall appearing and add these to the bin too.

Alphabet Leaf Activity

For our alphabet and letter activity this week we are matching up lower and upper case letters on fall leaves.

You could use real leaves or like in the post why not use some silk leaves.

Leaf Math Activity Inspired by Leaf Man

We looking at patterns this week and our math activity is to make patterns with fall leaves.

Start off simple with a two-colour pattern and then develop as your child can follow the patterns.

Leaf Snack for Preschoolers

We’ve got a healthy option this week for your snack/cooking activity to make some edible fall leaves.

Craft for Leaf Week

This week’s craft is to create a fall wreath.

It’s very open-ended and we love providing the materials and inviting our kids to get creative themselves instead of following a set plan for this activity.
