Leaves, leaves, leaves! Fall or Autumn is all about the changing leaves - the colors, shapes and sounds of Fall leaves make it such a great topic to explore with toddles. While there are many ways to explore the Fall leaves a few simple ones include:

  • taking a nature walk
  • discussing the changing colors of the leaves
  • listening to and discussing the sounds the leaves make when you step on them
  • talking about the different shapes of the leaves
  • exploring why the seasons change and what 'Fall' means
