As the cooler fall days are picking up, I’m finding myself wanting to be outside with my kids constantly. And honestly, the fresh air does us all some good. So when I came across the book, We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger, I couldn’t help but try to come up with an activity that would get us all outside. I guess the teacher in me will always shine through. 😉
My kids really loved this book and once we were finished reading, they couldn’t wait to go on their own leaf hunt. I created this document so that I could print it out and tape/glue it to a bag for them to collect all of their items in. Also, my kids are still working on how to properly hold a pencil, so I also gave them fun pens to use to cross off the items.

We were outside for almost 2 solid hours! #momwin!! I think they ended up collecting more leaves than anything, but there were there endless giggles, questions and exclamations about what they found. The cutest conversation we had was about what would happen if we tried to put the spider we found into the bag. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this activity as much as we did!
