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.
Why am I doing this?
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.
How can I do more?
Encourage your child to teach you a game – letting them teach you something is empowering for your child.
