Letter of the Week L l !

Leaf L !

School is starting , the leaves are turning and we had to turn our heat on the other day so I thought this weeks letter craft should reflect the upcoming season! Sorry it’s a few days late, it’s been so rainy we had to wait for the leaves to dry!

 

  1. Gather your materials. You will need to gather some leaves, 2 pieces of construction paper, glue, scissors and some markers.
  2. Go outside and find some fun colorful leaves! If the neighbor’s cat wants to help that’s a bonus!
  3. Draw a big L
  4. Have your child color the L while you wipe down and or dry the leaves!
  5. Add the glue
  6. Glue on the leaves.
  7. Let dry, I had to cover the L with wax paper and the heaviest ( and best might I add) cookbook I have to press the leaves down. After about an hour I was able to peel the wax paper off and let the leaves dry in the open.
  8. When dry cut out and glue onto the 2nd piece of paper.

 

Song!

Hurry, Hurry, Seasons Changing

Hurry, Hurry, Spring is coming
See all the flowers blooming
Hurry , Hurry Spring is coming
Baby animals everywhere!

Hurry, Hurry, Summer’s coming
See how the sun is shining,
Hurry , Hurry, Summer’s coming
At the beach and at the pool!

Hurry, Hurry, Autumn’s coming
See all the leaves falling,
Hurry, Hurry, Autumn’s coming
Grab a sweater it’s getting cold!

Hurry, Hurry, Winter’s coming
See all the snow falling,
Hurry, Hurry Winter’s coming
Bundle up like a polar bear!

    I just love your blog!! I also have a 20 mo. old son, and have been looking for age-appropriate crafts for him. And the songs are great!

    With fall quickly approaching here in the midwest, I can’t wait to start with the Leaf “L”.

    Thanks!

    I’ve got this one on my “L” list of crafts – “L” is coming up in two weeks! Thanks!

    I post most of our weekly crafts for my 16-mo-old on Wednesdays, and I love what I’m finding on your blog.

    Perfect! My son will enjoy looking for leaves this evening after he wakes up! We now have 3 crafts to fit in before bed time. Oh boy! :)
