An Activity for Preschoolers:
Explore the fall season and gather materials to create a personal Leaf Man.


Before You Begin:
Gather materials needed: Large sheets of heavyweight paper (at least 9" x 12"), glue, and an assortment of leaves from outside with which to create a Leaf Man. Lead a nature walk outside to gather leaves. Provide the children with a small bag to use to collect leaves.


Activity Goals:
  • To encourage creativity and self-expression
  • To explore color blending, positive and negative space

    Furthermore:
    Read and discuss the book The Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. For future projects, use collected leaves to create an array of different creatures.




  • Spread the collected leaves on a work surface.
    Arrange the leaves on top of a sheet of paper in the shape a Leaf Man. When you are happy with how your Leaf Man looks, carefully glue the leaves to the paper.
    As the children work, discuss the different types of leaves and the trees they come from.
    Optional: Enhance your Leaf Man creation with paint or other embellishments.
