Leaf Collection

You Will Need:

A bag to collect leaves, coffee filters, heavy book, journal or scrapbook, marker, double-sided tape or glue, a tree identification book or website

Directions:

Go on a walk with your child and have him collect many different types of leaves in the bag. Press each leaf between 2 coffee filters and place in a heavy book (a phone book works well). You can add additional books on top to increase the weight. Let the leaves dry for a few days. Have your child place them in the leaf journal or scrapbook, and label them with the name of the tree each leaf came from. Research and learn about the trees with your child by using the  tree identification book or the internet.

Tip:

Before pressing leaves and adding them to the journal, have your child sort them into different categories, such as round, pointed, brown, red, etc.
