Playing with leaves requires physical movement, such as running, jumping, and throwing. This can be a fun and engaging way to get exercise and the improve the children’s overall physical health.
The texture, colour, and smell of leaves has provided a rich sensory experience for the children at Forest school today. This can be especially beneficial for children who are still developing their sensory processing skills.
Playing with leaves sparked creativity and imagination in the group today. Children can use the leaves to make art, build structures, or play imaginative games. Today they decided to bury each other in the leaf piles they had made.
This was a fun group activity, encouraging social interaction and cooperation. They worked together to collect and pile leaves, and took it in turns to be covered in the leaves.
Overall, playing outside with leaves can be a fun, engaging, and beneficial activity for all the Reception class children.
