Early Years – Painting with leaves

Autumn is great! Full of free treasures for your child, from colourful leaves, to conkers, acorns, twigs and many more. There are plenty of activities you can do, from going on an Autumn’s walk, collecting all the free resources for painting, sticking, making collages and many more. Enjoy jumping in puddles and kicking leaves. Listen to the sounds as the water splashes and leaves scrunch underfoot.
Last time I used leaves to paint and explore the colours…

My favourite Autumn Song:

Autumn Leaves are Falling (tune to “Mary had a Little Lamb”)

Autumn leaves are falling down,
Falling down, falling down,
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Yellow, red and brown.

*

Find a broom and start to sweep,
Start to sweep, start to sweep,
Find a broom and start to sweep,
Yellow, red and brown.

*

And make them in a great big heap,
A great big heap, a great big heap,
And make them in a great big heap,
Yellow, red and brown.

*

But here comes the wind to blow them round,
Blow them round, blow them round,
Here comes the wind to blow them round,
and blow them all away.
