Tub of Dried Leaves

Leaves are falling, blowing, and laying all around.  Take your toddler outside to collect a tub of these interesting pieces of nature.  Once you have a full tub, dig in and let your senses explore!

Help your toddler explain their experience by asking questions such as the following:

  1. How do the leaves feel?
  2. What sounds do you hear when you move your hands in the leaves?
  3. What colors do you see in the tub?
  4. Do you smell anything different when you put your nose near the bin?
  5. How does it feel when the leaves crumble as you squeeze them?
