Primary Punchbowl Fall Blog Hop

Hello Friends!
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are finding lots of great Fall-themed activities and freebies!  Fall is my favorite time of year.  I always look forward to trips to the pumpkin patch, honey crisp apples being in season, the fall colors, and the change in the weather.  I have to admit it's a bit different living in the Bahamas for a couple years without all those things, but we still find ways to celebrate Fall.

Our favorite Fall activities always have to do with leaves.  When I was in the classroom I read Look What I Did With a Leaf every year to my students.

I would then send home a letter having them hunt for leaves and create something out of the leaves they found.  It was a great family project.  I wish I still had pictures of the amazing things my first and second graders did with leaves but I wasn't a blogger back then and the thought never really occurred to me.  *Sigh*

So what do I do with my own children when we are living in the Bahamas and the leaves aren't turning colors?  We make our own leaves with Fall colors!

Fall, leaves, art projects, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarten

Note:  I did this with a group of toddlers and preschoolers and waiting for the glue to dry wasn't an option.  We opted to use some scotch tape to attach the construction paper to the painting paper.

  2. I just pulled that book out of my teacher books to set out for my girls. That is such a good idea. We might just be collecting leaves this week and seeing what we could come up with. Wishing I could send you some of these gorgeous changing leaves from Michigan to the Bahamas!

  3. Your leaf project reminds me of The Leaf Man. So fun! We don't have traditional seasons here either but some of the leaves do change colors. It can make teaching the seasons a bit more challenging! Love the freebies! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Your blog looks awesome, Joya! I love the freebie! My kiddos always need help with abc order, so Candy Corn Craze will be on my lesson plans the week! :) I sure do love fall, but I love the beach even more ;) enjoy that beautiful weather!

  5. Thank you so much for these great activities! I know my littles will love them!

  6. You are too cute! I completely understand about making your own fall leaves. Living in Florida means only one type of season, summer! :) So, we bring the seasons to the kiddies! Thank you for sharing!


  7. Love the leaf activity. Since we are still in the high 80's and low 90's our leaves aren't turning yet either. Such a fantastic freebie. It will come in handy over the next couple of weeks! Thanks for sharing!
