Have the children collect leaves and berries from all the trees they find. Make leaf rubbings. Have the children “crayon rub” them with fall colors.
Idea From Stefani
1.) Place the leaves under white paper.
2.) Rub w/paperless crayon.
3.) Use tree identification books to label the leaves with the children.
