Leaves and apples - autumny fun!

Autumn is such a fab time of year for art and craft activities for little ones - lots of scrunchy textures and lovely rich colours

This week we've been exploring "Autumn" - the children had been collecting autumn leaves during the week and it was lots of fun looking through them all and seeing all the different sizes and colours!

Leaf printing is always a favourite activity - really simple and the magic of lifting up the leaf and seeing the print underneath never fails to amaze. There's all sorts of ways to print with leaves but it's great fun to use a rolling pin to roll over the leaf and make the print - makes a lovely clear print and great for coordination skills! I added a few apples too - easy for tiny hands to grip and squidge into plates of paint.

Here's some pics of what we've been up to with our leaves this week - printing, collage and making leaf prints in our glittery playdough too!
