Autumn Leaf Printing

The Ladybirds went out to collect a variety of autumn leaves. 

The children collected various red, green, yellow and brown leaves. 

The children categorised the leaves by selecting small and large leaves and putting them in piles. 

The children threw leaves up in the air and laughed as they fell down around them.

Sam found a leaf with a snail on it. 

Everyone watched with awe and wonder. 

Once the leaves had been collected the children took them back to nursery.

The leaves were used to dip in paint and print in paper. 

Everyone carefully painted the leaf or dipped in paint. 

The leaf was printed on the paper. 

The children looked at the pattern left by the leaf.
