|M is 3 2/3 years old|
|R is 23 months old|
All of this week's printables are from 2 Teaching Mommies.
|Leaf Do a Dot Sheets|
I've never really done these with M, but R LOVES them, and has gotten M hooked too.
|Leaf Parts Beginning Letter Sound Matching|
|Which is Different worksheet|
|Leaf Counting Clip Sheets|
I am still impressed with how well M is doing with these, compared to only a couple of months ago! I guess practice makes perfect!
It's not a very good shot, but I punched holes in some not-too-dry leaves and R laced w/ a pipe cleaner while M laced with a shoe string.
They crunched up the leaves into tiny pieces - what great fine motor practice!
|Leaf Glitter Art|
They made pictures using glue and then added their crushed up leaves from the activity above as "glitter".
|The finished pieces.|
We went to a friend's house for a playdate earlier this week and she had an awesome little craft for the kids that fit right in with our theme this week! They used sponges to add leaves to these great trees.
|M filled her tree with leaves!|
|R's was a bit more sparse - all his leaves had already fallen off! :)|
|Leaf Imprints in Playdough|
The kids LOVE all the leaves falling in our front yard and have been going out daily to jump in leaf piles!
Are you on Pinterest? I always have so many more ideas that I actually use, so check out my Leaf Theme Pinterest board if you are looking for more ideas!
Make sure to check out the Leaf themed activities we did last year, including our Leaf Family Night.
M had her end-of-semester ballet recital today. It was so cute! Her class is 3-5 year olds and most of them (including M) were completely clueless about what they were doing. :)
|She's the little one in the middle. :)|
