What to do with this activity?
Make beautiful autumn-themed leaf lanterns - instructions from the excellent crafting for kids website Red Ted Art.
And of course, enjoy a walk in the woods or park first and collect interesting leaves to use. Choose leaf shapes that will look lovely when silhouetted against the light of the lantern.
One of the ways children learn is through play. A child who is playing is refining learning skills that continue to develop during childhood and beyond. Indoor and outdoor games are a great way of practising some of the reading, writing and number skills your child has learned.
Encourage your child to teach you a game – letting them teach you something is empowering for your child.
