Warm colours leaf wreath
Autumn -crunchy leaves, the chill in the air, nights drawing in, cold weather food and the colours, my goodness the colours! Bright yellow, deep orange, ruby red and chestnut brown - just such a gorgeous mix of warm colours!
I love Autumn and if you and your learners do too this little craft activity is an easy way to welcome Autumn into your home or classroom. It's easy enough for all age groups to do and interesting enough to engage everyone. It's also a reasonably quick make with little mess. Colouring the different sections of the leaves takes a bit of concentration making it a great calming activity too. I have used it with my classes to recap on the colour wheel and also as part of 'seasons' work with my youngest learners.
I always use pencils, pens and crayons to decorate the leaves but water colours could also work well.
Basically, all that is required is to colour, cut and glue and then hang it up for all to admire.
I have done a similar activity where the children just decorate one larger leaf, this works well for those that have a low attention span or younger children but bigger kids seem to like the larger size leaves a lot too and the leaves look great when displayed altogether. If printed on card these are also fun to decorate using glitter, sequins and acrylic paints too.
