Enchanted Childhood Preschool ~ More Fall Fun

The Fall Fun continues at our little preschool.  There are so many fall activities we want to squeeze in!

Monday, we made sweet little leaf rubbing books!

Tuesday, the children started off making nature prints, using leaves, nuts, acorns, and pinecones to print and paint with... but it quickly became a child-led project with some children experimenting with mixing colors and others finger painting...

Wednesday and Thursday were much too gorgeous outside to stay inside doing art.

This week, in our little Montessori-inspired classroom, we worked on making patterns.
First the children simply copied the pattern I made.

After they got the hang of that, they moved on to continuing patterns I started.

This week, we added about 15 minutes to our "work period" and the children handled it just fine!

“Such experiences is not just play…. It is work he must do in order to grow up.”
Maria Montessori

Each week I join several linky parties!  What a fun way to share and learn!

  1. I love that leaf rubbing book. I have done leaf rubbings with my kids, but they usually just get thrown out afterward. I love the idea of turning the pages into a book. Also, those patterns with acorns are SO cute!

  2. You guys have too much fun! Thanks for linking up this week!
