Pre-School Fall Craft and Math Game

Who doesn’t just love Autumn with its mass of beautiful colours and being able to scrunch, scrunch, scrunch along in all those wonderful leaves?

And of course, Autumn’s full of so many learning opportunities for children of all ages too. Perhaps you’ll be exploring colours, shapes, patterns, seasons, hibernation or seed dispersal?

For the very young the magic of leaves falling from trees is very special and we’ve got a simple Fall craft to help you explore and chatter about this at home. This easy Fall craft doubles up as a great little maths game too.

Make a fun and simple Fall Craft and Math Game for pre-schoolers. From My lIttle 3 and Me

I really felt this Fall craft and math game lent itself well to a video tutorial so I’ve had a go at making one. I hope you’ll bear with me as this video blog making is still very new to me and I’m on a steep learning curve! I am sorry but I’ve made a classic newbie error and made this video with the camera the wrong way round so I’m afraid the image is rather small, sorry!!! Hopefully it’s not too much a problem.

Big breath, here goes…

This video malarkey is new to me so your feedback is really helpful.  Feel free to let me know more about what works for you and what I’m doing right or wrong so that I can suit you, the readers, better in the future. Maybe you feel these video blogs still need a written version of instruction too? Maybe you favour one method over the other? I’d love to know your thoughts. Thank-you. x

  1. What a fun fall activity! Thank you so much for sharing, you’ve now planned some afternoon fun for us this week plus our Tot School Craft with our friends. Wonderful Video!

    • Emma "My Little 3 and Me" Smith says:

      Thanks so much Kim I’m delighted that you found it useful to you and it’s great news that you like the video too. :-)

  2. Tirzah Biddinger says:

    Could make it a game by standing, have one child blow while the others try to catch leaves with butterfly net. Most leaves win, or if more end up on floor than net, then the blower wins.

  3. cute idea! feel free to post this to the Fall Crafts Blog Hop today!

  4. I used this in my classroom! I numbered the leaves and had my kiddos put them in order. We worked in small groups and it turned into a fun game!

    • Emma "My Little 3 and Me" Smith says:

      Thanks for that Julia, I love your ordering numbers to 10 idea. Fantastic, thanks for sharing. :-)

  5. I love this activity Emma! What a fun way to learn for Fall.

    I’d love for you to come share this at our Pinning for Play link party!

  6. Personally, I like a written version too. Sometimes, I’m at work so I can’t look at the video but I can read the directions.

    • Emma "My Little 3 and Me" Smith says:

      That is a really valid point Mama Carmody, thanks for your thoughts. I myself am often just snatching the odd minute here and there to look things up on the web and like you said those times are not always appropriate for watching a clip. Thanks again. :-)
