Autumn Leaf Activities for Children

The following post contains a range of different autumn leaf activities for children that are related to the autumn season. I’ve done some of these at home with my children and others I have used as teaching activities in school. They all have a teaching and learning objective in mind, but some of them are focused on creative arts and design, whilst others are maths or science focused.

Sorting, Rocks!

Rocks can be all sorts of fun for sorting! They can be sorted by size, shape, colour. They can be sorted in groups or it can be done in gradients. Children can be free to sort them and organise them in any way they like. It’s a great way for children to begin to think about similarities and differences and how things can be similar in some ways and different in others.

Numeral & Dice Rocks – Ordering Numbers

My children love playing with rocks and pebbles in the garden. Writing numerals and sets of dots on them provides an opportunity for them to see and use numerals during their everyday play. Having these around for children to play with allows them to become familiar with numerals and numbers and gives them the opportunity for them to incorporate them into their daily play.

Easy Peasy Pot & Pan Play

Pot and pan play is a great activity for babies and toddlers to do on their own for short periods of time to help build their independent play but it’s also a nice thing to do together. Taking turns hitting the pots and copying what they do is a great way to bond with your child and continue to build attachments.
