There are so many ways you can play, explore, and create with leaves!

Here is a wonderful collection of some of our favorite Fall leaf themed activities for toddlers! Preschoolers and older kids will enjoy them too!

Are you ready for crisp cool days and leaves to start falling? One of my favorite memories as a child was exploring colorful leaves and tossing them into the air and building big piles and jumping into them.
