I love teaching my kids about the seasons and using nature during that season is a great way to do that. If you have a lot of trees in your yard or neighborhood you should have lots of leaves falling right now. What a beautiful time to go outside, breathe the fresh air and collect leaves for fun activities and crafts!
Here are some fun things to do with leaves:
