Fall Craft For Kids!
Why Do Leaves Change Color? (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 2) written by Betsy Maestro is a wonderful book to read to children about what happens to leaves in Autumn as they change colors. And, there are so many fabulous activities to go along with the book, like this Raking The Leaves Fall craft for kids.
While the kids are making their Raking The Leaves Fall craft, play The Fall Song for kids in the background.
The Fall Song for kids is a nice complement to this super fun kids Fall craft activity!
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s craft a Lawn Rake for all the Falling Leaves!
Craft items you will need:
- Small round craft dowel
- Black marker (optional)
- Blue construction paper
Have the children collect small sized leaves from outside, in all different colors and shapes.
Next, have the children apply glue to leaves and paste them all over the bottom of a sheet of construction paper.
Then, help the children break a dowel into a 6″ piece. This will be the Lawn Rake handle.
After that, break a dowel into a 1″ piece and 3-4 tiny pieces for the Lawn Rake prongs. This will be for the bottom of the Lawn Rake.
Have the children glue the Lawn Rake handle on top of the leaves.
Once done, have the children glue the 1″ piece at the bottom of the Lawn Rake handle.
Lastly, help the children glue the Lawn Rake prongs carefully.
