Our theme for the month of October is fall. So, last week we did some fall related activities.
We started out by going to see some real pumpkins.

We also looked outside when we went on our walk and while playing in the back yard for some leaves.

Then we made a leaf collage.
Here’s what you’ll need: your leaf collection, contact paper, scissors and tape.
Put the contact paper onto the table, sticky side up. I added some tape to the sides to tape it down to the table so that it wouldn’t pull up every time Hailey’s arm brushed it. Then add your leaves to the contact paper.
After you finish adding leaves, put another piece of contact paper sticky side down on top of the piece of contact paper with the leaves on it. Put them together so that the sticky sides are touching, this will hold your collage together.
Then we did a fall painting:
Here’s what you’ll need: paint, paper, and some fall related items- we used a pine cone and a leaf.

We had another fall related activity, but it also relates to our shape and color so I am saving it for tomorrow.
