Activities and Crafts with Fall Leaves
Play in Them
This classic autumn activity is enjoyed by people of all ages. Step outside into the chilly air, rake the fallen leaves into a huge pile, and jump in!
Bring Them Inside
Put colorful leaves in vases or glass bottles to place around your home. They make great decorations for a dinner party or for Thanksgiving. You can also put them in a bowl with potpourri for a sweet smelling centerpiece.
Make a Leaf Crown
Use raffia as the base and hot glue leaves on it to form a crown. This can also be worn as part of a Halloween or fall festival costume.
Make Your Own Candle Holder
Use dried and pressed leaves to make your own mason jar candle holder. Spread Modge Podge on the outside of the jar, place the leaves on it, and then cover it with another layer. Let it dry and then place your favorite fall scented candle inside to create a warm ambiance.
Take a Scenic Hike
Take a hike in the mountains or just in your neighborhood. Collect your favorite fall leaves as you go. Then press them between the pages of a large book and preserve them in contact paper.
