When it comes to seasons, Florida doesn’t really have that many seasons. With a few exceptions we don’t get to see fall foliage like other parts of the world, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t still learn about them and celebrate fall in our own way! Regardless of where you live it can be fun to do a fall leaf theme, and we always enjoy doing a bunch of fun fall leaf activities with preschoolers. If you are looking for a fun fall art project to do with your kids or to learn about the changing seasons, these leaf art projects are perfect! You’ll find fall process art ideas and some leaf crafts that still allow for a bit of creative expression.
