Chubbie Cubbie's Activities for Fall

Activity name:
Crushed Leaf Collage

Materials needed:
Construction paper (red or orange)
Very dry leaves
White glue

Preparation:

You may opt to take your child(ren) on a nature hike to find dry leaves..

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children put some glue onto their piece of construction paper any way they'd like.  Then have them crush dry leaves and sprinkle them onto their paper where they put the glue.

Variation - Have the children decorate large cut out leaves with the crushed dry leaves.


Activity name:
3-D Leaves

Materials needed:
Construction paper (green or a fall color)
White glue
Scissors

Preparation:
Cut out large leaves from construction paper.

Carrying out the activity:
Show the children a real leaf.  Point out the veins on the leaf.  Have them touch the leaf so they can feel the veins.

Have them put glue on their leaves to make veins.  When the glue is dry, have them touch the veins they created on their leaf.


Activity name:
Paint with Pumpkins

Materials needed:
Orange and green paint
White paper
Paper plate
Small pumpkins (the ones with the biggest ridges work best--be sure they still have stems)

Preparation:
Put some paint onto a paper plate.

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children hold the stem of the pumpkin and then roll it in the paint.  Then have them roll it onto their piece of paper. 

Have them keep applying paint and rolling randomly on their paper as much as they desire.


Activity name:
Hand Leaves

Materials needed:
Red, orange, yellow, and/or brown construction paper
Crayons
Scissors

Preparation:
Trace a child's hands (fingers and thumbs together) onto a piece of construction paper. Cut out the hands. When cutting out the bottom of the palm area, cut to create a stem or glue a paper one on later.

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children color their leaves by adding veins or any other way they might choose.


Activity name:
Cornmeal Leaves

Materials needed:
Red, orange, yellow, and/or brown construction paper
Scissors
Cornmeal
Red, yellow, and green food color
Plastic or Styrofoam bowls
Plastic spoon
White school glue

Preparation:
Step 1 ~
Cut out simple leaf shapes from the construction paper.

Step 2~
Put some cornmeal into a bowl and add a few drops of red food coloring.  Use the back of a spoon to push and mix the food coloring into the cornmeal. This can be a time consuming process, but it's well worth the time.  Continue adding small amounts of food color until the mixture obtains the color you desire. The mixture will not be a true color. Some of the cornmeal color will show through, which adds to the effect.  Repeat this process in additional bowls to create the yellow and green colored cornmeal.

Carrying out the activity:
Put glue on each leaf forming a veining pattern--be sure not to put it on too thick. If the children are old enough, they can do this part themselves. Have the children sprinkle small amounts of the colored cornmeal onto the glue. When all of the glue areas have been covered with the colored cornmeal, carefully tip the leaf and shake off the excess. Allow the leaves to dry completely. When dry, have the children feel the veins on their leaves.
