Fall is the perfect time to teach your toddler about the letter “L”! It would be so fun to learn about leaves while all of the leaves outside are changing colors.
Make the Letter
Use some pipe cleaners to make the letter L.
Your toddler will have so much fun with the “Which One is Different?” page from the Toddler Curriculum!
L is for Leaves Toddler Trays
Leaf rubbings with real leaves and orange, red, yellow, green, and brown crayons.
Sort decorative leaves by color into small containers.
Using green, orange, red, or yellow playdough, make playdough snakes. Cut snakes into small pieces and press onto a tree playdough mat (included in the Toddler Curriculm) to make leaves on the tree.
Put a small decorative leaf into each square on the counting sheet. Can also count each row when finished.
Paint a leaf on nine wooden blocks. When dry, have child complete the puzzle by putting the blocks together correctly to form the leaf.
Have your toddler use alphabet stamps to stamp Ls in the empty boxes.
One of our favorite letter activities is the L collage. Have your toddler glue leaves onto the L.
Read your toddler “A Leaf Can Be …“.
Letter L Craft
Get an empty paper towel roll and glue some leaves to it. The Toddler Curriculum has leaf pictures that you can print and glue onto the paper towel roll. You could also use fabric leaves or even real leaves!
Use kinetic sand for this sensory bin. This is a great sensory bin base for a child who already knows how to use a sensory bin. I wouldn’t recommend it for a child’s first sensory bin experience because it is very messy.
