A huge leaf pile is a great place to develop visual motor skills by playing look and find games and scavenger hunts. These are just a few of the many benefits of leaf play. Leaf play provides opportunities for language development, fine motor development, and creative dramatic play. Not to mention the hours of fun!
Today the children at Forest School made a leaf mobile and decided to wrap it around the oak tree in the school grounds. They managed to thread the string onto a darning needle and attach the leaves.
Afterwards they played with the leaves and as usual buried themselves under them.
Lots of giggles today at Forest School.
Enjoy the snapshots!
