One of the first things children will notice is the leaves changing colour and falling to the floor so we have put together a Autumn leaf hunt activity sheet for you to download and enjoy with the kids. See how many Autumn leaves you can find and identify. Continue reading “Autumn leaf hunt activity”

Our caterpillar and butterfly identification sheets are free for you to download and enjoy. Continue reading “Caterpillar and butterfly identification activity”
