We are singing:
“Five Little Leaves”
Five little leaves on the tree next door,
One fell off and then there were four.
Four little leaves all over the tree,
One fell off and then there were three.
Three little leaves where the wind blew,
One fell off and then there were two.
Two little leaves sitting in the sun,
One fell off and then there was one.
One little leaf in the tree all alone,
The wind blew and blew and now there are none!
We are making:
Go on a leaf hunt!
Walk around the yard or neighborhood and collect pretty fall leaves. Bring them inside and glue them on a piece of paper for a fall collage, or put them under paper and make leaf rubbings with crayons. Talk about what your favorite fall leaf colors are!
Some tips for you:
Kids can help with yard work! Get them involved:
- Visit your local hardware or toy store and get child sized yard tools. Raking is a lot more fun with a tool your size!
- Try to turn each yard project into a fun game. Who can get the biggest leaf pile?
- Make sure you give your child plenty of breaks. It’s a good chance for you to stop and get a drink of water too. Don’t forget some yummy fall snacks!
