Fall Leaves Crafts and Activities
My youngest asked if we could paint some leaves this morning. It has been a long time since we have done any crafts at home, so I immediately said yes. He wanted to cut some leaves from paper and paint them, but I suggested we take a walk and collect some real leaves to paint. So, we took a short walk in the neighborhood and collected a ton of different kinds of leaves.
Here are the leaves we collected.
Once we were back home, we talked about which colors are fall colors. We set up our paint tray and began painting.
Here are a few of my favorites:
So, inspired by this experience with my boys, I search around the web a bit and found a handful of other fall leaves crafts that I hope to do with my boys this season.

And now the After School Linky:
The After School Link Up is a great place to share ideas and to find new ideas to do with your children after school or in your homeschool. The After School Link Up goes live every Monday. So, if you are a blogger, an educator or just some one looking for some good ideas, be sure to stop by Boy Mama Teacher Mama (or the other co-hosts) on Mondays and see what others have to share.
We would love to have you link up your School-Age Post (Ages 5 and up) about your learning week after school including Crafts, Activities, Playtime and Adventures that you are doing to enrich your children’s lives after their day at school, homeschool or on the weekend! When linking up, please take a moment to comment on at least one post linked up before yours and grab our After School button to include a link on your post or site! By linking up you’re giving permission for us to share on our After School Pinterest Board or Feature on our After School Party in the upcoming weeks!
