istockphoto-985032688-612x612.jpg

Get outside and go on a scavenger hunt with your toddler to collect fall leaves and create a beautiful wreath to hang in your home!

Activity Instructions

Out of an old box, posterboard, or paper plate, cut out a large circle and another smaller circle inside to create a wreath. You can also get creative and instead of cutting a wreath, maybe your toddler would like a star shape, a heart shape, or even a tree!
Grab a bag, get outside, and have fun collecting fall leaves!
Engage your child with fun 'I wonder' statements. You can explain to your child that every year we have the season called Fall. It has another name too, we also call this time of year Autumn. During this time of year the temperature gets colder and the leaves on the trees start to fall as the trees prepare themselves for the cold winter ahead.
When you are back home, collect your cardboard cutout and glue. Have fun gluing all of the beautiful leaves you collected on your wreath.
I wonder where we should hang this?

Supplies Needed

Cardboard, poster board, paper plate
Scissors
Glue - Modge Podge or glue dots; Elmer's will work but will require a longer time to dry.
Bag full of leaves

I Wonder... 

I wonder statements are a great way to introduce concepts to children, stimulate their curiosity while modeling the pleasure of learning, and embrace ideas in a fun and unpressured way!

I wonder what colors are on this leaf?
I wonder how many points are on this leaf?
I wonder if this leaf is bigger than that leaf?
I wonder if any leaves are the same shape?
I wonder how many leaves we collected?
