Littles Learning Link Up: Fall Leaves All Around Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

It's time for this month's Round Up

Fall is just around the corner. Scary, isn't it. Though I am looking forward to some relieve from the hot, humid days. More than that though, I LOVE seeing the breathtaking views as the seasons change and the trees are painted in brilliant colors. Of course, the children love to see the leaves falling down, because that means we can do all sorts of crafts and activities. Today I would like to share with you this amazing compilation of leaf activities. There are crafts that use real leaves, and crafts that are made to resemble leaves. There are sensory activities, and activities for heading outdoors. Don't miss all the educational selections, from math and science to free printables. Have fun perusing the selections. I hope you find some that pique your interest. Happy Almost Fall!
