We show you how to create your own Colorful Leaf Cut and Match Activity. It combines scissors skills, beginning sounds, fine motor skills, and crafting.
Thanks to Nichole, from the United States, who sent in this great colorful leaf cut and idea. Let’s take a look at it…
What did you do?
I simply drew a tree trunk with branches, wrote the first letters of each color name where leaves would be, and cut some strips of paper in each color.
My little one cut leaves from the strips and glued them on top of the corresponding beginning sounds.
Both activities go perfectly with the beautiful book, Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak.
I like that it covers multiple learning aspects. This activity combines scissors skills, beginning sounds, fine motor skills, and crafting.
Do you have any other projects planned?
We are crafting some Christmas trees, also using scissor skills this week.
