The kids and I really enjoy doing our little Backyard Birdwatching activity during the spring and summer, so I thought I'd make a similar activity we could enjoy during the fall. We came up with a little leaf journal.
Simply download and print the journal. Then go for a walk, collect some leaves and document your findings. Here's a handy tip: print pages 3-4 back to front so when you open the book, all the info on one leaf is in the same place.
We had a lot of fun collecting leaves, and my three-year-old was enchanted by the magic of leaf rubbings. But I think my favorite part is the self-portrait page. Priceless.
Happy Fall, Everybody!
