Fall Tree Craft for Toddlers and Preschoolers

It is fall and the leaves are falling down. We may be sad to see the first sign of winter coming, but if your kids are anything like mine, they are THRILLED with a great new activity, jumping in leaves! To celebrate this week, we made this beautiful fall tree craft for preschoolers.

Ever since the first leaves starting falling in August (Yes, August!), H has been picking them up, laughing her head off and shouting “Call Grampie!” Grampie has a big lawn and H loves to visit in the fall and jump in his leaf piles. I know they are going to have so much fun again this year.
