Simple leaf activities to explore Fall! I still want to celebrate Fall as long as I can before the cold of Winter settles in soon! These simple leaf activities came about from outdoor leaf pile play. Why not bring a small sensory bin of leaves inside and enjoy some easy leaf activities for encouraging fine motor skills and science play! We used our scissors, tongs, a magnifying glass and an eye dropper to encourage fine motor skills and observation skills throughout our leaf activities! We even decided to freeze our leaves to see what would happen!
