Crunchy autumn leaves

Age: as soon as your child can walk (aided)

Time: 2 minutes to 15 minutes

Equipment: an outdoor space with autumn leaves on the ground

Development: gross motor skills, walking, running , jumping, skipping, language and sounds, learning about seasons and change

Make your next autumn walk an adventure!  Encourage your child to walk through the leaves, listening to the sounds they make under his feet – you can imitate the sounds together or name them.  Depending on your child’s age and stage, he can then run, jump or skip through the leaves – each will provide a different sound and sensation.
