Here’s a great fall leaves scrapbook project to do with the kids. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 (4-5).
  1. Collect and dry leaves of all kinds
  2. Optional: Download fall leaves info sheet.
  3. Either paste the leaves onto scrap book pages, or do a rubbing of the leaf.
  4. Add to your scrapbook with some great decorations, and page accessories. Secure all contents in place.
  5. Cover the entire page with clear contact paper (a sealant-type of paper) smooth out any air bubbles.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT:  Fine Motor (cutting, pasting,  scrapbooking), Intellectual (categorizing, sorting fall leaves), Social (talking about the leaves, sharing of art supplies )
